Archaeologists have discovered the remains of a man in Pompeii who they believe survived the first blast of Mount Vesuvius only to be crushed by a stone block launched by the volcanic cloud as he was attempting to flee almost 2,000 years ago. 79, only to be crushed beneath a block of stone hurled by an explosive volcanic cloud, new excavations at the site suggest.
The skeleton's remains are in what the Pompeii archaeological site calls a "dramatic position" - with a large rectangular stone embedded in the upper torso.
According to officials, the man is thought to have escaped the first stage of the eruption, only to be hit with a giant rock flung from the later stages of Vesuvius' A.D. Based on the location of the man's remains and the, well, large object on his body, it appears as though he actually survived the initial volcanic blast and had waited for the right moment to evacuate the area. Since the man's tibia bone had lesions in it, the scientists suspect he may have had a bone infection that prevented him from quickly escaping, the statement said.
