Gas Drilling Rig Worker Killed On Job

A gas drilling rig worker was killed last month when he fell from a natural gas drilling rig, owned by Nomac Drilling Inc. of Towanda Township, PA, according to reports.

The accident occurred while the worker was attempting to dislodge part of a platform as the drilling unit was being moved to another drilling hole site on the drilling pad. The handrail gave way and he fell approximately 20 feet. The victim suffered a severe head injury, reports say.

The name of the employee was withheld until the family was notified. A full investigation is underway, according to reports
