Employee #1, an oil well driller, was operating the drawwork on rig #4 making a connection. When he went to apply the brake a piece of hand line caught around the handle, which prevented it from applying full force on the brakes. The blocks came down, catching the employee between the blocks and the drawworks. He sustained massive head injuries and died.
