The accident was during repairs to the power generating turbine, not on the reactor which was being refueled.

A second reactor at the site was shut down as a consequence.

But accident at nuclear plant makes for a good headline - doesn't matter if it's someone tripping over a loose paving slab.

You can make that into a good headline if you're a policewoman, and do it at a petrol station!

Yes, very sad for those innvolved but not of any wider significance than any other industrial accident.
