The man who survived both atomic bombs














BBC - Man survived both atomic bombings:

Tsutomu Yamaguchi was in Hiroshima on a business trip on 6 August 1945 when a US plane dropped the first atomic bomb.

He suffered serious burns and spent a night there before returning to his home city of Nagasaki just before it was bombed on 9 August.

Is this good luck or bad luck?

Surviving, yes - incredible luck.
