On August 9, 1945, the United States dropped its second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan, killing 70,000 people and injuring hundreds of thousands more. One of those severely injured in the blast was Dr. Takashi Nagai, a radiologist at the Nagasaki University hospital. Thrown to the ground while filing x-rays in his office, which was located only 700 yards from the blast’s epicenter, Nagai suffered lacerations all over his body due to flying glass and debris. His wife, Midori, was not as fortunate. Dr. Nagai found her carbonized remains among the debris of their now vaporized home.
