Was this bad luck or what.

    A man believed to have been in his 30's when he died at Pompeii did so not because of molten lava, or ash, but because he was struck while apparently trying to flee the eruption.

    Archaeologists discovered the mans remains at the famous site. It appears that he may have been suffering from an infection that slowed him down.

    He was struck by a large boulder and decapitated. I suppose the only saving grace was that he literally didn't know what hit him. Maybe a blessing in disguise when you think of how other victims died.

    I must admit, Italy and Pompeii is a place that i would dearly love to visit.
