On May 19, 2008, four employees were preparing to make a connection during horizontal drilling activities. When the kelly hose became caught on a post, they pushed it up and over the post. Either it became stuck on a valve or a nipple failed behind the valve to the mud pressure gauge. Liquid was released at 2,000 psi and threw Employee #1 into a corner, where his head struck equipment. He was air-lifted to a hospital, where he died later that day.
