THIS MAN WAS MY COUSIN-IN-LAW. HE'S NOT GONNA GET TO BE A FATHER TO HIS YOUNG CHILDREN NOW BECAUSE HE HAD A SCREWED UP BOSS MAN..I HOPE THIS OIL COMPANY GETS SUIED. IT IS SO UN-FAIR FOR ALL OF HIS FAMILY TO HAVE TO LIVE WITH OUT HIM NOW BECAUSE SOMEONE DIDNT DO THEIR JOB.

i work in the oil field in oklahoma , and is very dangerous ,mostly is the operator responsability because a little mistake can cause a death, but there is a lot of ways to get hurt on a rig .must be alert at all times

My son died on October 15, 2007 on an Oklahoma oil rig. His death was due to malfunction of machinery. My prayers go out to all families who have lost their loved ones for the sake of this country's dependency on oil.
God Bless the huring families of America,

Death is a terrible thing to happen to anyone. Especially when there is some doubt about who and what are at fault. I am a drilling consultant and have been since 1980. If it has happened, I have seen it. Shortcuts and stupidity cause most accidents. The last accident that happened on one of my rigs was jerking off a derrickmans big toe. Policy is not always adhered too. I have created a website www.oilfieldtrash.com to give a better insight to the right way to do things.
My prayers will be with the family. Work hard but safe, please.
