The eldest son of the world's oldest living person has died aged 97.
Harold Fairweather passed away at their home in Duanvale, Jamaica on Wednesday, April 19 after suffering a short illness.
A family caretaker, Elaine McGrowder, said Harold had complained of dizziness on Wednesday morning and his condition deteriorated before he passed away.
Elaine added: "He had been unwell for some time but we didn't expect him to go like this. He was a beautiful man - very, very special."
Harold lived with his mother, Violet Mosse-Brown, who became the world's oldest living person after the passing of the previous record holder, Italian Emma Morano, on April 15.
Mosse-Brown was born on March 10, 1900. Before Harold's passing, he was believed to be the world's oldest person to have a living parent.
Mosse-Brown's family has a history of long-living members. For instance, both her parents reportedly lived to the age of 96.
