On June 25, 2011, Employee #1 and his coworkers had completed rig up and were preparing to drill when a leak was noticed at the cellar jet line. A union on the 6-inch diameter discharge line was leaking. Employee #1 went under the sub to make the repair. The line had broken and a steel cable was used to pick up the line in conjunction with a large rope wrapped around the cathead. The wind was blowing and the rope got tangled with the cable in the mast, which pulled the cable and struck Employee #1 in the chin with enough force that it picked him up and threw him into the I-beams of the sub. He was airlifted to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
