Tsutomu Yamaguchi

Was either the luckiest or very unluckiest of men. On August 6th, 1945, he was in Hiroshima when the atomic bomb was dropped. Although seriously burned, he managed to make it back to his hometown in three daysand was at a meeting with his employer, explaining what had happened when the meeting was rudely interrupted by the second atomic bomb over Nagasaki. Amazingly, Mr. Yamaguchi is still alive at the age of ninety-three.
