Give the brave men of the WIPP ESTs and EMTs a hand as they were the first responders the the site as part of the Memorandum of Understanding with the local agencies. It had to be a tough go but at least they had the best to come first. Blessings and prayers to the first responders across the world. Tough job.

Give them a hand for letting a man die? Are you kidding me? They said nothing was wrong with him, but he ended up dead?

Not one person said nothing was wrong with him,they said there were no signs of obvious injuries. In other words it was all internal. I am sure they knew something was wrong considering he did not wake up. The EMS did not let him die. I feel for the victim, family, friends, and crew.

You are an idiot. How about you fall from that high and see how well you turn up, see if first responders can save you.

He was dead when the got there yet the continued to provide CPR until the Carlsbad EMTs arrived. He broke his neck in the fall. Get your facts straight.

This is very sad, there have been a lot of deaths this year in the oil field. Looks like Osha needs to step up their job!
