A very much alive 66-year-old Nagasaki man is erroneously on a list of people killed in the 1945 U.S. atomic bombing of the city, the man revealed Sunday.

Teruo Ideguchi, who works as a volunteer telling younger generations about his atomic bomb experiences, said he recently discovered he is registered as having died the day the bomb was dropped, Aug. 9, 1945.
