Brigade Energy Services in North Dakota suffered a fatality


An OSHA spokeswoman said employees of Brigade Energy Services were finishing up servicing a well when the top end of a heavy rod they were reconnecting fell and struck a male employee in the head, the Bismarck Tribune reported.

The deceased is a 34-year-old man. His name was not released.

The case is not a criminal investigation, according to Fry, who said no one else was injured.

Our prayers go out to the family.
