    thoughts go out to his family and friends. Yet I must say, this is an industry that's instrumental in far more deaths…

      me too but the thing is if they cant keep themselves from being electrocuted how can they run a nuclear power plant???


        hint br1209 was that it occurred within a tunnel. It's likely he was working in a wet environment. This could happen to any of us…

    Millions have died already… many more millions will become victims in the future from Fuku and other nuclear accidents. No one is counting, because all of the poison is invisible and untraceable. One hot particle can kill, but no one can detect it. The perfect poison.

    Hold on…. Lets put this in perspective..

    Here in the USA 1000s die and 10,000s are maimed every year in work related accidents…

    They just don't have elaborate para-military myth building parades and ceremonies like the police and fire departments do for their workers deaths – often at public expense…

    Other workers are only regular low workers after all… Their service and live does not matter so much… As so, their often shortened lives from work related toxic exposures and injury…

    I can only imagine the toll in workers lives in third world countries…

    Keep your eyes on the ball folks…
