News Around the world!! Japanese news reporter died after logging 159 hours of overtime in a month


A  news reporter died of congestive heart failure after logging 159 hours of overtime in one month, according to local media.


Miwa Sado, a 31-year-old politics reporter for public broadcasting organization NHK, was reportedly found dead in her bed in July 2013, clutching her mobile phone.

Although Sado died in 2013, her official cause of her death was only made public this week after her parents pressured the company to take action to prevent other reporters from meeting similar fates.

"My heart breaks at the thought that she may have wanted to call me" in her final moments, her mother told the Asahi daily. "With Miwa gone, I feel like half of my body has been torn off. I won't be able to laugh for real for the rest of my life."
