KLBK-TV News in Lubbock confirmed with Lea County Sheriff’s Office that one person is dead from this accident and one seriously injured. Again, Deputies say it was a wireline explosion and crews on-scene do not have good cell service, so limited information is available at this time.
The wireline hand who was killed had a perforating gun go off on surface.
Rusty “Shakedown” Harrison passed away from injuries due to metal and shrapnel. Tyler Winter was severely injured and life flighted to Lubbock Texas. Both men worked for Black Warrior Wireline.
