There are cases were people at the epicenter of an explosions survive where others further away did not. And if you remember, he was in pretty bad shape afterwards. Also, the explosion didn't destroy that much. Let's see, the head was destroyed, as was the main computer/cockpit, and some structural components. As he was a little distance from the interior of the cockpit, and the explosion was forced through a small area, it is entirely possible that the wave front of air being pushed out from the cockpit flung him with enough force and speed that he managed to avoid most of the small debris and heat that would have killed him had he not been positioned so fortunately.

Granted, his survival is not likely, but it IS possible. And it helped further the story (because, face it, there wouldn't be one really without him).
