I have always assumed that Professor Jacob Seltzman was the only person to escape the village in the pre-Fall Out episodes. But did he actually escape, because the film of the Allouette helicopter supposedly carrying Seltzman away in the guise of the Colonel, is the same film seen at the end of the episode 'Its Your Funeral,' but which is a fraction shorter, you do not see the helicopter turn back on itself, back towards the village.
So that piece of helicopter film footage, which is stock footage, is in itself suggestive enough to make us think that Professor Jacob Seltzman did in fact escape the village. But the helicopter could have been brought back through contact with the pilot from the control room. Or returned back to the village under remote control via an operator in the control room. And then don't forget the helicopter takes passengers to a landing stage, which is mentioned by No.2 during .The Schizoid Man.. But I suppose in the long run, its less complicated if we simply believe that Seltzman is the one who got away!
Be seeing you
