Marine hurls himself onto Taliban grenade

This was a headline from The Times on the 30th March page 5. "A royal marine in southern Afghanistan threw himself onto an exploding grenade to save the lives of him patrol. Miraculously, Lance Corporal Matt Croucher, a marine reservist from Birmingham, survived the blast with little injury when his rutsack and body armour tool the force of the blast. He is expected to receive one of the highest awards for gallantry.". The article later says "You would expect nine out of 10 people to die in that situation". It seems to me that this would be a good discussion / death / sacrifice etc.
