Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170081483Event: 12/11/1995Employee Killed When Struck By Flying Cable
Employee #1 was working on a drilling rig as a derrickman. He was part of a crew that was executing a fishing operation with a drill pipe and wire cable to retrieve a logging tool that had become stuck in the well hole. The fishing operation was being conducted by a supervisor with 18 years of experience. The supervisor had told the crew, including Employee #1, to stay off the rig floor during the fishing operation when torque and rope tension were involved. Apparently, Employee #1 went to help a coworker who was taking up slack in the wire line, which was spooling off a wire line truck from ground level. Employee #1 was struck and killed by the flying cable.
