» A pump to inject water into reactors stopped by huma error

A pump to inject water into one of the severely damaged reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant stopped on Oct 7th after a worker accidentally triggered a power failure, according to TEPCO.

The halt occurred at around 9:47 a.m. but cooling of the No. 1 reactor immediately resumed through a backup pump.

TEPCO said the power failure occurred when one of two employees conducting routine checks of electricity equipment wrongly pushed a “stop” button on a switchboard, cutting power supply.
