Navajo man in New Mexico celebrates 103 years

With more than 30 family members at his side, Lee Hosteen Yazzie celebrated his 103rd birthday at a nursing home in New Mexico on Wednesday.

When asked the secret of his age, Yazzie said he always kept active. He walked several miles a day when he was younger, rode horses until he was 90 and chopped his own wood until he was 100.

Yazzie spent 101 of years life in Sweetwater but he now lives in at the Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Bloomfield. He has four daughters, three sons, 14 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren.
