Employee Is Killed When Oil Rig Tips Over

At approximately 7:12 p.m. on October 19, 2006, Employee #1 was standing on a monkeyboard of a portable oil well drilling rig. He was approximately 55 ft above the ground in the mast, while his supervisor, the rig's tool pusher, attempted to center the rig's derrick over the wellhead by adjusting the rig's 4-hydraulic corner jacks. As the rig's 103-ft high mast tilted, the supervisor noticed the unit shifting too much and attempted a correction. The derrick became uncontrollable and the rig tipped over to the ground. Employee #1 was killed.
