Fifty-one crew members of the USS Ronald Reagan say they are suffering from a variety of cancers as a direct result of their involvement in Operation Tomodachi, a U.S. rescue mission in Fukushima after the nuclear disaster in March 2011. The affected sailors are suing Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), alleging that the utility mishandled the crisis and did not adequately warn the crew of the risk of participating in the earthquake relief efforts.龙腾网

51名里根号航母上的船员说,因为之前参与在福岛的“友好行动”,他们现在正遭受着一系列的癌症折磨,这是2011年3月福岛核危机所引起的。患病船员正在起诉东京电力公司,指称该公司未正确处理危机,且未适当地向参与抗震救灾的人员警示所存在的危险。

Crew members, many of whom are in their 20s, have been diagnosed with conditions including thyroid cancer, testicular cancer and leukemia. The Department of Defense says the Navy took "proactive measures" in order to "mitigate the levels of Fukushima-related contamination on U.S. Navy ships and aircraft” and that crew members were not exposed to dangerous radiation levels.

这些参与者,大多20来岁,已被诊断出甲状腺癌,睾丸癌和白血病。国防部则表示,海军之前采取了“积极措施”,以“减轻福岛核泄漏对美国海军舰艇和飞机的污染水平”,而船员们则没有暴露于危险的核辐射水平。

Charles Bonner, attorney for the sailors, says the radiation the USS Ronald Reagan crew was exposed to extended beyond the tasks of Operation Tomodachi. Deployed ships desalinate their own water, so crew members were unknowingly drinking, cooking with, and bathing in contaminated water due to the ship's close proximity to the disaster site, according to Bonner. The USS Reagan was ultimately informed of the contamination after a month of living approximately 10 miles offshore from the affected region.

Charles Bonner,船员们的律师,说里根号航母暴露于核辐射中的时间不仅只限于友好任务期间。Bonner说,这些部署在福岛核废墟附近的船只自己净化海水,供不知情的船员们饮用,做饭和洗浴。而一个月后,距离辐射区域约10英里的里根才最终被告知受到了核污染。

The number of plaintiffs in the case could grow significantly as 150 additional crew members are currently being medically screened to join. The sailors are seeking $40 million each in punitive damages as well as a $1 billion fund for future medical expenses for members of the USS Reagan.

这一事件的原告可能会更多,因为另外150名船员目前正在接受医疗排查。船员们每人要求4000万美元的赔偿,以及10亿美元的赔偿基金作为后续里根号船员的治疗费用。

3个回复,没啥看头,就不翻了。

皆さん,请痛饮这杯福岛水,今夜我们都是日本人。
