At approximately 8:15 a.m. on July 12, 2004, Employee #1 was on the derrick ladder of a work-over rig when he was struck by the drilling line he was attempting to untangle during the rig-up operations. He fell approximately 15 feet to the rig floor and then another 4 feet to the ground resulting in a broken leg. He was hospitalized and surgery was performed to place a metal rod into his leg to repair the broken bone. He was released on July 14, 2004 to recover at home. On July 28, 2004, after leaving the local Wal-Mart store with a friend, while they were driving away, Employee #1 went into convulsions and turned blue from the waist up. He died within a short period of time. His death is presumed to be related to the accident.
