Fourth worker at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant dies
A man in his 60s has become the fourth worker to die at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, which was crippled by the March 11 disaster. Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the operator of the plant, said that the man died after collapsing on the job on Monday.
According to the operator, the man was pouring concrete for a tank to hold radioactive materials, when he complained of sickness and later passed out before falling into a coma, TBS reported.
TEPCO claims the man’s death was due to an acute myocardial infarction and was not related to exposure to radiation.
