    confused

    It couldn't have happened to a nicer man.
    The sentence above makes me so confused. And I can't find the context.
    What's the meaning?
    It happened to the nicest man.
    It shouldn't happen to a nicer man, but actually it did.
    Maybe it didn't happen to a nicer man.
    I'm looking forward to your help.
    Thanks a lot.

    Just a student.
    I think your first interpretation is correct: "it happened to the nicest man".
