Meet Man Who Turned Both 92 and 23 Today



A man is celebrating his own double  birthday today, as he turns 92 and 23 on the same day.

Walter Cargill, from Scartho, was born on February 29, also know as Leap Day , which only comes around every four years.

The former British rail worker will mark the occasion surrounded by his friends and family. His daughter, Denise Portus, spoke on behalf of her father, and told Grimsby Live how he originally defied the odds to get where he is today.

She said: “He was born in Aby, Lincolnshire, on February 29, 1928, and he only weighed 2lbs.

“Doctors originally gave him a night to live because he was so small, but he survived.

“He was the youngest of six, who were all boys, and he has lived a long life and had a wide variety of jobs across Lincolnshire
