The soldier the taliban can't kill

Wow, this guy could be luckier than this soldier. The Sun

HERO Colour Sergeant Alan Dennis is the man the Taliban just can’t kill — after surviving being blown up for a SECOND time.

Two years ago the career soldier escaped from the wreckage of his Land Rover in a roadside bomb attack that claimed the life of a comrade.

Now he has cheated death again in Afghanistan following a grenade attack.

Once again miracle man Alan,35, was hurled into the air — landing under rubble in a trench.

But despite arm injures he recovered to return fire on the enemy and lead his men to safety.[...]

A rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) blew up in front of him sending him flying through the air and slamming him down into a trench buried under rubble.

Undeterred by what he thought was a broken arm, and under a constant hail of bullets, he grabbed his rifle and returned fire until his men were safe.
