Fracking Claims Another Life

Fracking Claims Another Life

With several days of extreme cold in a row, one of the high pressure lines at a fracking well in Colorado had froze. Three men were attempting to heat the line to free up the flow of liquid.  At some point, something went very wrong and the line ruptured. One man was struck by either water or fracking fluid and was killed from the force of the impact. The two working with him had to be transported by air to local hospitals to be treated for their injuries according to a report from Halliburton, the company contracted to run the fracking well.
