On 8/22/2015, Tepco announced another Fukushima worker died in the plant.

This is not covered by the mass media for some reason.

At 13:10 of 8/21/2015, it was reported to the emergency headquarters that a subcontract worker lost the consciousness. The worker was transporting equipment related to the retained contaminated water beside Reactor 1 turbine building.

The worker was sent to Iwaki Kyouritsu Hospital by ambulance but confirmed to be dead at 15:47 of the day.

The age and gender are not reported.

In August, 3 workers are already dead in Fukushima plant.
