Fukushima Daiichi plant worker dies (NHK, May 14, 2011):

A worker at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant fell unconscious at work on Saturday and later died.

The worker in his 60s complained of ill health while working at a waste processing facility. He worked for a subcontracting firm of Tokyo Electric Power Company.

The man was taken to a medical office in the plant, where he was found to have lost consciousness. He was then taken by ambulance to a hospital in Iwaki City and confirmed dead shortly after 9:30 AM. The cause of his death is unknown.

Tokyo Electric says the worker had been transporting equipment since Friday. He was scheduled to work for 3 hours from 6:00 AM on Saturday.

  1. A lot of people will sicken and die. This is an unmitigated disaster, and the governments around the world are doing all of us a grave injustice by concealing and burying this story. Anyone with any brains ought to recognize this radiation pouring into our waters, soil and air is going to kill us. Instead, they lie about it, and try diverting people with foolish politics.
    Thanks to all of you on this site. Many of us are very disturbed by the lack of information; this story is going to affect everyone.
