A tragic accident

Post  ed_m on Wed Sep 26, 2012 1:45 pm

We just lost a fellow brother Herbie Goforth, Journeyman Lineman. He just topped out last week and would have been 30 years tomorrow.
He fell approx 100’ off of a 500KV line tower. He was working for Nevada Energy.
I have no other information as of yet. I hate to post this but it is heartbreaking to lose anyone with all the safety equipment we have today. If I get more I will pass it along.
Send your prayers to his family and girlfriend.
