He was mentioned on the BBC in QI at some point, which caused controversy, as they made light of his "bad luck"...
For a man who after being hurt by a nuke, can get himself in work the next day (because let's face it, we'd take the day off if we had a bad dream about one) and then his work place happens to be in the other Japanese city which is to be bombed shortly after, AND he survived both, AND lived to a ripe old age many of us can only hope for (93)... Hats off to him... Tsutomu Yamaguchi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
