    Peter was on guard duty

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    Peter was on guard duty when the explosion at the ammunition depot happened. The blast was so strong that it threw him into the air. It was a miracle that he was unhurt.

    (better)...that he was not hurt. Otherwise, they are fine.

    "... that he was unhurt" works for me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    To me, "not hurt" is more common than "unhurt" but he used it correctly.
