Two Missing Workers at Fukushima Daiichi Found

It had seemed unlikely that the fate of the two workers who went missing after the tsunami hit Fukushima Daiichi was going to be happy. Still:
They are the first two workers at the plant and the first employees of the operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, to have died in the aftermath of the March 11 quake ...
Here is who they were:
The company said the workers, Kazuhiro Kokubo, 24, and Yoshiki Terashima, 21, died on March 11 around 4 p.m., after the tsunami hit the Daiichi plant. The company said the workers lost great amounts of blood and went into shock, and linked their deaths to the tsunami.
Just getting started in their careers. 


Japan will have many, many of the missing lost to the sea and many more found dead and many, we may pray in our various ways, found alive. But I can't help but think these two men were ours. They were ours.

Thank you for the warm message.

We won't waste their sacrifice.
We learned a lot of things for disaster prevention from this giant tsunami.
In near future, we will utilize feedback information to prevent reoccurrence of the accident, and contribute to the reliability of the new NPPs worldwide.
