fyi- Zac starts working as a derrickhand (what he's currently doing for WISCO) on Monday because there is no word on a final date for when the WISCO rig will be up and running or when Buck is gonna have a new one ready to go-- Plus St. Mary's doesn't wanna hire a crew where billy is the supervisor because of this "accident" which pretty much means Buck will pull the whole crew anyway...
I'm kinda pissed though because Zac was due for 2 weeks paid vacation (instead of 1) in January, as well as would've been fully vested in the 401k they offered, PLUS, our $3000.00 Christmas bonus...BLAH... I'm hoping that H&L will forgo the insurance waiting period because Zac is rescuing their crew-- Nobody likes to be a derrickhand, they're all afraid of heights.
Here are 6 pics of the tipped over rig. As it was tipping, Zac was running up the side of it, and jumped off the edge landing just behind the underside (now facing up!) of the wheels-- His supervisor, billy, couldn't get off fast enough and wedged himself where the cab lifts the rest of the work-over rig off the ground just a big-- he's lucky, he could've been crushed.( Read more...Collapse )
