Twice!

A survivor of HiroshimaAND Nagasaki:

Tsutomu Yamaguchi had already been a certifiedhibakusha,
or radiation survivor, of the Aug. 9, 1945, atomic bombing in Nagasaki,
but has now been confirmed as surviving the attack on Hiroshima three
days earlier as well, city officials said.

Yamaguchi was in
Hiroshima on a business trip on Aug. 6, 1945, when a U.S. B-29 dropped
an atomic bomb. He suffered serious burns to his upper body and spent
the night in the city. He then returned to his hometown of Nagasaki
just in time for the second attack, city officials said.

    I don’t know about that “certified as a survivor”, because I’ve heard reports of such double-survivors for some years now, and it sounded like there were something like a dozen of them.
    Less now, as old age takes its toll.
