Japan’s public broadcaster has revealed that one of its reporters died from overwork.

日本的公共電視台披露,該台1名記者死於工作過勞。

NHK said that labor officials had concluded that the 31-year-old political reporter died from heart failure caused by spending long hours on the job.

NHK表示,勞動部門官員斷定,這名31歲的政治線記者之死肇因於長時間工作的心臟衰竭。

A government study published last year found that one in five workers is at risk of working themselves to death.

日本政府去年發佈的1份研究發現,5分之1的勞工有過勞致死之虞。

According to a news story published by NHK, Miwa Sado had worked 159 hours of overtime in the month before her death.

根據NHK的新聞報導,佐戶未和在過世前的那個月超時工作159小時。

The circumstances of Sado’s death in 2013 had not been made public until this week.

佐戶在2013年死亡的情況一直到本週才公諸於世。

NHK said it was taking the death of its employee very seriously. The broadcaster has pledged to reform the way its reporters work.

NHK表示非常重視佐戶之死;該公司已誓言改革旗下記者的工作方式。
