Man who survived 2 atom bombs dies
Tokyo, Japan (CNN) -- The only man recognized as a survivor of both atom bombs dropped in Japan at the end of World War II has died.
Tsutomu Yamaguchi died Monday after a battle with stomach cancer. He was 93.
He had long been a certified "hibakusha," or radiation survivor, of the August 9, 1945, atomic bombing in Nagasaki. In March 2009, the Japanese government confirmed that he had also survived Hiroshima three days earlier.
Not one but two nuclear weapons and he lived to 93? How long would he have lived had he not been exposed to that radiation?
And yes, Mr. Yamaguchi's nickname was, in fact, "Lucky"...
That is all.
UPDATE: Doubletrouble points out that he was all over this story yesterday. Guess Northeast bloggers even think alike...
