TEPCO Blames Rat For Fukushima Outage - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

This rat was the culprit behind last week's 29-hour power cut at Tokyo Electric Power Company's Fukushima Daaichi plant. A photograph was released showing the scorched body of a small rodent found near a temporary switchboard used to supply power to cooling systems for the disabled plant's spent nuclear rods. Investigators confirmed the power cut began after the rodent touched exposed wires and triggered a circuit breaker.
