Breaking News: Two nuc workers poured radioactive water over themselves

8/31/2011,two plant workers at Fukushima poured radioactive water over themselves.

They were pulling out water where they stock material to absorb cesium from highly contaminated water.

One of them was trying to pull out the water on the top of a ladder and the other worker was supporting the ladder. Around 9:35AM on 8/31,they poured the water over themselves mistakenly.

One of them was wearing rain coat but the other one was only wearing clothes with bonded material. Radioactive water got on his body directly,they detected 10 times higher as “standard”.

They assert they did not take it into the body from mouth or nose for some reason.

They also assert the exposure dose was only 0.14 ~ 0.16 mSv for some reason too.

(As to the acute leukemia accident,they declare it has nothing to do with the work at the plant because “incubation stage takes a few years in case of acute leukemia”.However,from my research,acute leukemia does not have incubation stage.

They say the dead worker was exposed to only 0.5 mSv,and died of acute leukemia but either of the info,or both of the info are very suspicious.Even in this case,even though they had the radioactive shower from the top of head , saying they were only exposed to 0.14 mSv sounds un-understandable to me,at least.

I will make another article about this issue soon.)

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
