I posted previously about the strange case of Tsutomu Yamaguchi, who was in Hiroshima on a business trip on August 6, 1945 and his hometown of Nagasaki of August 9th, and thus was the only known survivor of both nuclear massacres.

Yamaguchi has died after a battle against stomach cancer. According to NPR,

Last month, Avatar director James Cameron visited Yamaguchi. Cameron is considering making a film of an upcoming book by Charles Pelegrino, The Last Train From Hiroshima: The Survivors Look Back.

After meeting with Cameron and Pellegrino, Yamaguchi told The Mainichi Daily News that he believed it is the director's "destiny" to make a film about the bombings.
