Fukushima N-Plant Worker Dies of Acute Leukemia, Jiji Press, August 30, 2011:
Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Tuesday that a man in his 40s who had worked to help contain the radiation crisis at the firm’s crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant has died of acute leukemia. [...]
The man worked at the Fukushima plant for seven days from early August. His jobs included radiation exposure management, the officials said. [...]
A medical checkup prior to his work at the plant showed no problems in his health. [...]
TEPCO says the man’s death had nothing to do with his work at Fukushima.
