It's nothing out of the ordinary -- it happens to tens of thousands of people each day. But when it happened to him, it was truly a miracle.

Here's a recap:

A miracle happened to a man; this miracle arose from an occurence which happens to tens of thousands of normal people every day. It is a realistic enough situation that it could possibly happen, but it has never happened before. The miracle in it all was due to the timing of the event and the fact that our man was in danger at the time -- he recieved something from someone, saving him from almost certain death at the hands of a man-made disaster, which we later discovered was a bomb; however, if this 'ordinary' event (not the miracle) were to happen to just anyone, it would also be a miracle, but not to the same degree as this one. This particular event involved a chain of rather unlikely events and some instinctive action, but what is so miraculous is the fact that our man stopped the disaster by creating another disaster himself. The type of bomb is relevant.

You're focusing WAY too much on the plane. You know everything you need to know (which is almost nothing) about the plane. Move on to other aspects of the puzzle.

Could you please post a recap? I'm confused... What's the miracle? Being saved from asphyxiation? Did he really receive an atomic bomb (doesn't it weigh several tons? What is the ordinary event? Still to be found out?
And is there any way I could see the original post? Thanks!

RECAP:
Our man was choking, but recieved the Heimlich Manoevre. THIS is the first and lesser miracle, but also the ordinary event (it happens many times per day). He did NOT recieve a bomb, but he was in danger of one. There is an even greater miracle occured as a result of the first miracle (Heimlich Manoeuvre), but its details are yet to be uncovered ...


The first half of the puzzle is in "Recently Solved Puzzles."

RECAP :

Our man was choking in a restaurant in a large American (or possibly European) city, when someone who has no further relevance to the story delivered him the Heimlich Manoeuvre. This event indirectly stopped a nuclear bomb from destroying the city. At the time, there was not even a designated person who would set off the bomb, so our current situation stopped the bombing from even coming about.


If I have made any inadvertent errors/contradictions in my question-answering, these are rectified in the recap.

Was there some sort of detonator in the restaurant? Was the bomb wired up somehow to the restaurant's emergency systems? Was he in the kitchen of the restaurant? Or the dining area? Are aeroplanes relevant? Air traffic control? Early warning systems? (Forgive me if I've duplicated questions: I'm trying to clear my confusions and begin thinking again from the last recap.)

Was there anyone else in the restaurant who would have been in a position to detonate an explosion?

At the time of the choking incident: Is the bombing still in a planning phase? Has the plan been handed over to the people who are going carry out the detonation? Has the actual bomb been handed over to them? Is the bomb anywhere near the town? Is there any evidence of the plan to bomb the city present in the restaurant?
Is anyone of the people planning or executing the bombing present in the restaurant?
Does the choking stop any ongoing transactions? Handing over of any plans or orders?

Were the people who were planning the bomb attack on their way to the restaurant when the choking incident occur? Was it their meeting point? Had they met before so they knew what everyone looked like?
Did the meeting never occur due to what happened in the restaurant? If so: Did the attackers see what actually happened in there or did they think that the worst had happened, due to all the commotion? Such as the police was arresting one of them?

OK, putting things together, bear with me:

We have a large American or European city that some organisation is planning on destroying by dropping a Nuclear bomb on from a plane.

We know the plane never takes off from the runway.
• Was the plane meant to be taking off from the same city as was to be bombed? The same country? The same continent?
• Was the plane military or civillian?

The organisation to release the bomb:
• Were they military or "vigilante"?
• After the miracle, would they still wish to drop the bomb?

The bomb itself:
• Was it completed?
• Was it armed at the time of the miracle?
• Did it at any stage go off?
• Is its triggering method relevant?

The man was a civilian who was choking on an irrelevant object and was rescued by an anonymous person performing the Heimlich manouvere. This event caused a chain of events that stopped the bombing.
• Could the man have still stopped the bombing if he wasn't choking in the first place?
• Is his actions immediately following being rescued relevant?
• Was the fact that this was in a public place relevant?
• (From above) Did this incident cause a scene?
• ... or was where the object landed relevant?

Is the other person the one who was going to fly the plane with the bomb? Is he the mastermind behind the bombing operation? Did this man see the choker choking? Or know that he had done so?

Is it actually relevant that the man choked? If he had had his life saved in some other way would this puzzle still work? If he slipped and hurt himself? If he suffered a heart attack? If he choked but recovered without needing the heimlich? If he choked to death in the restaurant?

Also I'm a little confused...is the miracle people are talking about here (eg you said after the miracle the bombers no longer wanted to drop the bomb) the heimlich? Or is there another miracle that we have yet to discover?

Did the man's life being saved change his character in some way? Did he realise the value of life or some such thing? Did he do something he wouldn't normally have done?

So are there 3 miracles: the heimlich, the bomb not being dropped, and one we must discover? Or is the one we must discover just because we don't know enough about why the bomb was not dropped?
Did the choker see the mastermind at any time? Did they know each other?

Was the choking accidental, or was it induced by a malevolent agent? - i.e. OH was the victim of potential homicide?

Hypothetically speaking, after this third miracle occured, could the bomb have been dropped over the city if they still wished to, or was it now impossible?

Was there a war on? if not, would there have been a war if the bomb had dropped?

If there was, did OH's action cause the end of the war, thus ridding the bombers motive for dropping the bomb?

Is there a special reason why they plan to use a nuclear bomb instead of a conventional bomb?
Is there a threat involved in the plan? Such as do this or else...?
Is the goal to erase the town with its buildings or is the target more the people living there? Ie would the plan work if all people were evacuated before the detonation?

ok this is really stalling, lets try focussing on the mastermind - was he in the same city? same country? was he anywhere near the restaurant? did he give the order for the bomb to be fired? if so did he give it to another person? face to face? over the phone? via the internet? if he didn't was it because he didn't get some info? or was he waiting for something and no-one told him it had happened?

The military planning to bomb the city, is it a single person, the military of a country or an organization? Relevant?
Is there something important that would have happen if the man had died, that now did not happen? Anything related to the man? The restaurant? The city? Attention drawn to a person's death?
Does the choking man know any important people? Does he have a lot of money? Was he politically involved? Is he well known? Anything to do with his will? Possible insurance claims? Does he have the same name as someone else who is important?

Was the man connected to the military of the country planning to drop the bomb? Did he leave money to them? Was the reason the bomb wasn't dropped because they couldn't afford it? Were they counting on him dying at that point? Was the man from the country planning to drop the bomb?
Oh...I was forgetting about this man's medical condition. Were the bombers hoping he would die from it? Is the condition why there were certain terms in his will?

Was there some term in the man's will that, had he died, would have made it possible for the bomb to be dropped? Or made it easier? Given a reason for it to be dropped? Is it relevant how he would have left his money? Or other property? Is his funeral relevant at all?
Did the man support the plan to drop the bomb? Did he come from the same country? Was he aware of the plan to drop the bomb at any time? If so, before he was saved? After?

Thought I would give this a go with a few questions.

Regarding the hereditary condition:
does it affect an organ? heart? lung?
blood?
chromosomes?
body part? eyes (nearsighted? farsighted? blind?)
hands, fingers, feet, toes, legs?
his height?
other?

the second miracle has to do with the hereditary condition, correct?

is it important where the miltary mastermind is from? asia? africa? n. america? s. america? europe? australia?

is terrorism involved? is the mastermind a terrorist?

think I've seen two different answers, but I'll ask again: is anyone who is relevant in the restaurant at the time of the choking?

does the choking man go to the hospital at any time? I know not for the choking, but for another reason?

how long after the choking incident did the second miracle occur? and the 2nd miracle had to do with the choking man as well, correct?

did someone important (maybe mastermind) recognize him as being the choker? recognize him at all? did they ever meet or run into each other?

is choking man from this big city (about to be bombed)--or from its continent? or is he from somewhere else? if somewhere else: n. america, s. america, europe, australia, africa, asia?

Just checking a few things:
The man is anonymous in the eye's of the mastermind, at least at the time of the choking incident; however, his will, when released, could cause a nuclear attack.
He then does something (immediately or otherwise) that renders this attack unlikely.

As for the man, at the time of the choking incident, it is irrelevant whether he is famous, politically involved or has money. This will would therefore not be bequeathing money or support to any particular relevant person or group.

Therefore, does his will bequeath an artifact or information to someone/group?
He also has a heriditary condition that no-one knows about, at least not yet.

How long after he died would the attack have begun? immediately (up to within a week)? a month? a year? longer?

If he had died, would he have undergone an autopsey and knowledge of his condition become public?

Does the man himself have a relevant job?

Does he know about his condition, and that he would have passed it on to his children?

Not really Is it relevant how he would have left his money? NO Or other property? YES ish Is his funeral relevant at all? NO

Just checking a few things:
The man is anonymous in the eye's of the mastermind, at least at the time of the choking incident YES, but he is always anonymous; however, his will, when released, could cause a nuclear attack. YES
He then does something (immediately or otherwise) that renders this attack unlikely. Well, recall that we've said that his survival was what made the attack unlikely.

As for the man, at the time of the choking incident, it is irrelevant whether he is famous, politically involved or has money. This will would therefore not be bequeathing money or support to any particular relevant person or group. Correct

Therefore, does his will bequeath an artifact or information to someone/group? NO
He also has a heriditary condition that no-one knows about, at least not yet. No one on the forum at least.

How long after he died would the attack have begun? immediately (up to within a week)? Possibly but unlikely a month? Probably a year? Extremely unlikely longer? NO

If he had died, would he have undergone an autopsey and knowledge of his condition become public? Irr

Does the man himself have a relevant job? NO

Does he know about his condition, and that he would have passed it on to his children? Irr

Sorry for any duplicated questions
Does anyone else relevant to this puzzle have the blood condition? The mastermind? Does the man actually leave something to anyone? If so, tangible? Is the relevant part of his will to do with what would happen to his body after he died? Would it mean that someone else did somthing they wouldn't normally do? Would it be a fairly common clause, or is it very unusual?
Is his condition the reason why the bomb not going off was such a miracle? Eg would he have been more injured in a bomb blast than a normal person? Is the condition to do with his immune system? Is the radiation produced by a nuclear bomb relevant? Or would this work just as well for an ordinary bomb?

Did he leave his body to medical science? For research? Would his dying have somehow meant that a cure for his condition was found? Did the mastermind die of the condition, and if the hero had died then the mastermind could have been cured? Or was the mastermind so incapacitated by the condition that he couldnt have set off the bomb?
Is the condition leukaemia?

After death, would the hero have been buried? Cremated? Would he still have put this term in his will if he had not had the medical conditon? Did he, in fact, know that he had the condition? Would whatever had happened to his body had he died have found a cure for the condition? A way of lessening its effects?

At the time of the choking incident:
- does the man know that he has an unusual blood type?
- is he already donating blood?
- does he decide then and there to start saving lives by donating blood?
Does he become the only known person on the planet who can donate blood to the mastermind?
Does the mastermind find out where the donor lives?

So...the hero has a very rare blood type, which coincidentally is the same as that of a man plotting to destroy the city by nuclear bomb. If the hero had choked to death, his blood would have been used as a transfusion for the mastermind? Was the mastermind bleeding to death at this time? Had he had an accident? Been attacked? Was he nearby, so if they bloodtyped the dead hero as a matter of course (I have no idea if they do this) and realised he had te rare blood, they would have used it to save the mastermind? But as the hero survived, the mastermind died of his injuries/bled to death so couldn't drop the bomb?
Oh...did the hero's will say something like "I have this rare blood type, I give permission for it to be used in a transfusion after my death"? Anything like this?

Ah, so to ensure the kidney would not be rejected they had to use someone with the same blood type? In his will did the hero allow his organs to be used for donation? Is it important why the mastermind needed a kidney transplant? Had his failed? Was he on dialysis? Had he injured himself in such a way that his kidneys were damaged? Did the mastermind die as a result of his kidney problem? Or did he receive a transplant but it was rejected? Or got infected?
This has probably been covered, but is the hero related to the mastermind? Or is it just chance that they share the same blood type?

******* SPOILER ********

Our hero has a very rare blood type, which he shares with a man who plans to bomb his city. The man has kidney failure and is on dialysis, but needs a transplant quickly -- and there are few who share his blood type.

While at a restaurant, our hero chokes on some food, nearly killing him -- when he is given the Heimlich manoeuvre (the first miracle), saving him from death. As a result of his survival, the mastermind is unable to take advantage of that opportunity to get a kidney, and is unable to recieve one in time, thus he dies. Since he has not disclosed his plan to anyone yet, the city is saved from destruction. (the second, bigger miracle)
