Having said that, the director of operations at F. Daiichi, in the midst of the crisis was ordered by the misinformed government and TEPCO to cease using seawater for cooling because of fear of another criticality. He knew this to be poppycock and that above all the reactors must be cooled, so he said "understood" and then kept his workers cooling them anyway. In the weeks following he was given a simultaneous reprimand and accolade by the gov't and TEPCO.
He was later diagnosed with, I believe, stomach cancer, which was determined to be unrelated to the radiation.
