The mother of one of the workers at Fukushima nuclear plant has revealed that her son and his colleagues believe that they have been exposed to high levels of radiation and would die from radiation sickness 'within weeks' or 'cancer in the long-term.'

The Fukushima 50 is being exposed to high radioactive levels as they attempt to restore vital cooling systems following the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, the Daily Mail reported.

"My son and his colleagues have discussed it at length and they have committed themselves to die if necessary to save the nation...," the woman said.
