SOURCE: Fukushima Nuclear Worker Dies, Wall Street Journal by YUKA HAYASHI, October 7, 2011

A worker hired to help bring the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant under control died suddenly Thursday [...] He was taken to a hospital immediately, and died the next morning.

“We can’t disclose what was cited as the cause on his death certificate because it would amount to violation of privacy,” a Tepco spokesman said. [...]

The worker who died this week had worked there since Aug. 8, helping to install a tank used to treat contaminated water. He spent a total of 46 days at the plant [...]

A Sept. 9 whole-body scan of the man had shown no excessive exposure, the spokesman said. Tepco is still waiting for a test result to see if the worker had experienced more internal exposure since.
