Description Hirokazu Arima (5) was exposed in his home and trapped under his collapsed house. His mother Chiyoko dug him out and fled with him to a riverbank. Chiyoko lay the exhausted Hirokazu on a futon along with his father Tsutomu (40), whose body was full of glass fragments. She and other family members tried desperately to save them, but Tsutomu died on the 8th, and Hirokazu on the 10th. Hirokazu was wearing this name tag on the day of the bombing.
