Worry about something like this happening all the time. Hope we learn more about what went wrong at some point. For now we mourn the loss of another Tow Op killed in the line of duty. To everyone that views this topic, use all the safety precautions at your disposal. Never get in such a hurry you disregard safety procedures. While I don't know what caused this death, it had to be either a catastrophic equipment failure or an error. Either way this is a lost to the family, friends, employees and the industry. What I have learned from reading reports is this was a good man, the lord often takes to best first. Gods Speed...
