Tsutomu Yamaguchi was visiting Hiroshima on Aug. 6, 1945, the day an atomic bomb fell on the city. He survived.
Three days later he was home in Nagasaki when an American plane dropped an atomic bomb on that city, effectively ending World War II. Yamaguchi survived again.
Today, there’s word that the 93-year-old man has died after a battle against stomach cancer.
He was, as the Associated Press says, the only known survivor of both atomic blasts.
It took three tries and six decades, but the US has finally killed Tsutomo Yamaguchi.
