Employee Is Struck By Falling Load And Later Dies

At approximately 10:30 p.m. on August 8, 2011, Employee #1 and a coworker were rotating the outlet valves of a desander, which was used to separate sand and silt from drilling fluid. The desander was suspended from the fork of a forklift. Employee #1 laid beneath the desander and attempted to loosen the bolts on the third valve as the coworker assisted him.

They arrived and Employee #1 was airlifted to a medical center, where he died the following morning.
