Title: TEPCO finds 35-ton machine fallen in Fukushima No. 3 spent fuel pool
Source: Kyodo
Date: April 13

The operator of the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on Friday found that a 35-ton machine had dropped inside the spent fuel pool of the No. 3 unit, possibly because of a hydrogen explosion that occurred in the early stage of plantís nuclear accident last year. [...]

One photo showed part of the machine, originally located above the pool and used to insert and remove fuel, appeared to have dropped onto the nuclear fuel storage racks.
