Vomiting road workers hospitalized after exposing mysterious nuclear waste [View all]

Source: Fox News

Road workers began vomiting and were
hospitalized Wednesday after being exposed to
suspected nuclear material, unearthed during a
highway upgrade in Australia.

Meanwhile the country's nuclear authority was
scrambling for answers after the apparent
radioactive waste was uncovered on the Pacific
Highway south of Port Macquarie, in New South
Wales.

The material, said to include cesium, is believed
to have been buried after a truck carrying
radioactive isotopes from Sydney's Lucas
Heights nuclear reactor crashed in the area in
December 1980, The (Sydney) Daily Telegraph
reported. The isotopes are believed to have
been destined for the US.

The upgrade's project manager, Bob Higgins,
said the workers became sick after unearthing a
strange clay-like material, according to
Australian Associated Press.
