Alert 01 – 32 Fatal Incident – Crewman Crushed


While building mud weight a crew of roustabouts were mixing barite using super sack bags. They picked up the bag to begin filling the hopper with barite. As one man reached in to open the “ripcord” on the bag, the bag fell from its lifting system crushing the roustabout between the hopper and the bag. The man died instantly. Two other roustabouts helping in the operation suffered arm injuries.
