Update on the anti-catastrophe operations.
Interesting to know exactly what injuries and casualties there have been in the worker crews that are actually at so-called ground zero:
All of these people are heroes, along with all the workers who have stepped up to do the job when the original workers needed treatment.
Casualties among power plant workers
* Two Tepco employees have minor injuries.
* Two contractors were injured when the quake struck and were taken to hospital, one suffering two broken legs.
* A Tepco worker was taken to hospital after collapsing and experiencing chest pains.
* A subcontract worker at an "important earthquake-proof building" was found unconscious and was taken to hospital.
* Two Tepco workers felt ill whilst working in the control rooms of Fukushima Daiichi units 1 and 2 and were taken to the medical centre at Fukushima Daini.
* Four workers were injured in the hydrogen explosion at Fukushima Daiichi 1. They were all taken to hospital.
* Eleven workers (four Tepco workers, three subcontract workers and four members of Self Defence Force) were hurt following a similar explosion at Fukushima Daiichi 3. They were transferred to the Fukushima Daini plant. One of the Tepco employees, complaining of pain in his side, was later transferred to hospital.
* The whereabouts of two Tepco workers, who had been in the turbine building of Fukushima Daiichi unit 4, is unknown.
* Only one casualty has been reported at the Fukushima Daini plant. A worker in the crane operating console of the exhaust stack was seriously injured when the earthquake struck. He subsequently died.
* One Tepco worker working within the reactor building of Fukushima Daiichi unit 3 during "vent work" was taken to hospital after receiving radiation exposure exceeding 100 mSv, a level deemed acceptable in emergency situations by some national regulators.
* Nine Tepco employees and eight subcontractors suffered facial exposure to low levels of radiation. They did not require hospital treatment.
* Two policemen were decontaminated after beng exposed to radiation.
* An unspecified number of firemen who were exposed to radiation are under investigation.
