A 32-year-old Worland man was killed in a drilling rig accident north of Baggs, Wyoming, on May 15. Carl Jordan had been on the job for less than 90 days, said his wife, Cathy Jordan. “It could have been prevented. It was an operator error,” she told WyoFile. Carl was working on the floor of Winchester Well Service’s rig No. 1691 when blocks used to “cool the brakes” fell and struck him, said Carbon County Sheriff Jerry Colson. Jordan died at the scene.
