This is old news, but we just recently became aware of it. On January 17 of 2007, Ezra Gordon, 25 was killed in a drilling accident. Ezra was an employee of Crux Subsurface, Inc. of Spokane Valley, WA. According to the Associated Press by way of SeattlePi.com, the accident happened on a project in Sandpoint, Idaho where he and his 2 crew members were using a track mounted drill rig on a job involving new condominiums and a marina. The only details are that the victim’s clothes were caught up in the drill, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
I would personally like to offer my most sincere condolences to Ezra’s family, friends, and coworkers.
