An interesting story in the news, about the recent death of Tsutomu Yamaguchi, who on 6 August 1945 went on a business trip to Hiroshima, Japan. He survived the atomic blast and went home to recuperate -- to Nagasaki, where he survived the 9 August follow-up a-bomb. The only known survivor of both blasts, Yamaguchi died January 4 from stomach cancer at age 93.
