2. Reversal is not required because the trial court failed to admit mortality tables into evidence. The ages of the plaintiffs were shown, and the trial court charged on future pain and suffering. "Where the age of a person is shown, his expectancy of life may be determined by the jury without any other direct evidence on the subject. Tables of the probable length of life and its probable worth may be useful, but are not conclusive or absolutely essential for that purpose." Standard Oil Co. v. Reagan, 15 Ga. App. 571, 572 (5) (84 SE 69).
3. In plaintiff Claridy's case, error is enumerated upon the trial court's failure to charge her request no. 6, dealing with the aggravation of a pre-existing condition. While plaintiff contends that a medical witness gave testimony that the orthopedic injuries aggravated her pre-existing diabetic condition, we understand the testimony to be that the diabetic condition complicates the treatment of an orthopedic injury. This is the inverse of aggravation of a pre-existing condition, and we find no reversible error.
