The manager of the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) appeared in front of cameras Thursday to apologize for another issue at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
Voice of America News reported that TEPCO apologized after several workers at the site were accidentally doused with radioactive water. TEPCO has been criticized for sloppiness in its handling not only of the water management but also in other daily operations.
The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was the result of an earthquake and tsunami in March, 2011. The problems since then have been ongoing. The attached video highlights an incident earlier this month when four tons of rainwater contaminated with low level radiation leaked out by mishandling by workers.
Japanese government asks for help
International Business Times reported that last weekend the Japanese government asked the world for help in dealing with the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster. As Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Japan is "wide open to receive the most advanced knowledge from overseas to contain the problem," the International Business Times headline calls the remarks, "Two Years Too Late."
