Boomer Hook Strikes Employee


The incident occurred while walking a pad rig from one well to another. A pin pocket on the spreader bar, which pulls the suitcases behind the rig, broke. At that point, the move stopped. A chain and a ratchet boomer were attached to replace the spreader bar. This allowed workers to finish the move.
