Absorbent to soak up radioactive water, 2 found dead at nuke plant | Kyodo News

Workers prepared Sunday to block the leakage of highly radioactive water into the sea from the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant by injecting polymeric powder that can absorb 50 times its volume of water, the government's nuclear safety agency said.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano, meanwhile, told a press conference that it could take several months before radiation stops leaking from the plant.

The plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. said the same day that two workers in their 20s who had been missing since the devastating March 11 quake and tsunami that crippled the power station were found dead in the basement of a reactor turbine building last Wednesday.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

2 missing TEPCO workers found dead at troubled nuclear plant | Kyodo News

Two employees of Tokyo Electric Power Co. who had been missing since the March 11 quake and tsunami have been found dead at the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, the utility said Sunday, adding that they died of bleeding from multiple wounds.

The two, who had been inspecting the No. 4 reactor's turbine building, are believed to have died around 4 p.m. on March 11, after a massive tsunami triggered by the 2:46 p.m. quake struck the site.
