"Report: Fukushima Nuke Workers Expect To Die"

"TOKYO — The workers at Japan's stricken nuclear power plant — known as the Fukushima 50 — expect some of them will die within weeks or months, the mother of one has reportedly said.

Tokyo Electric Power Co,the power company, said Friday that radiation leaking from the plant had seeped into groundwater beneath the site.

The leak is an indicator of how far TEPCO is from stabilizing the dangerously overheating reactors after cooling systems were knocked out in the March 11 tsunami."
