Tokyo - A Japanese plant worker has died after 13 tons of molten metal were tipped all over him, police said on Monday.

Kazuki Tada, 23, was working on Saturday morning beneath a huge bucket containing an alloy that had been heated to around 1 300 degrees Celsius at a Nippon Denko plant in south-western Japan.

The bucket, which was suspended in mid-air, overbalanced, pouring the molten metal on Tada, police said.

An investigation into the accident is under way, a local police spokesman said. - AFP
