Another Worker Drops Dead At Fukushima Daiichi

workerA worker has died at Fukushima Daiichi. The report (machine translated below) indicates he was found dead around 10:39 in the morning. So it would be unlikely he was leaving work for the day. The weather recently has been somewhat warm but not extremely hot. Some of the early cases of workers dropping dead or falling ill at the plant were considered heat related. After this some heat related counter measures were put in place. Other cases were either never explained or vaguely claimed to be due to health problems.

A rough machine translation from the TEPCO handout is below (pls note the date is actually July 30, translation software did not properly translate that section)
