Minoru Tomita (24 at the time) was on a railway crossing on his way to Yokokawa Station, 1,700 meters from the hypocenter. He was accommodated at a nearby elementary school with very serious burns. This military uniform was sent to his Parents' home by a nurse who thought he would die. He is still alive and well.
