Dropped Rod Transfer and Stand

While servicing a well, a floorhand pushed a suspended rod string over the floor. As it was lowered to latch into the transfers, the rod string got hung up on the rig floor causing the rod to twist and detach from the rod transfer and carabiner. The rod transfer and rod string fell approximately 14 meters, and the rod transfer struck the floorhand on the wrist causing injury.
