    Default hachidan documentary

    I just saw the documentary from national geographic on the two guys who went for hachidan.
    Does anybody know the destiny of the old gentleman who had tried 24 times for hachidan? Is he still alive, and has he managed to pass the test?

    Talking What I heard...

    Hi,

    What I heard was that the older gentleman had a heart condition after that and basically was recommended by the doctor to not go under that kind of stress again. I don't believe he tested again.

    Could be wrong though...
