Investigators say a contract worker at a South Texas energy facility has died after a metal pipe fell on him.
The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports operations at the Trafigura EF90 LLC plant have been halted since the death of 54-year-old Jeffery Babzien.
State and federal safety officials were at the site Tuesday, a day after the accident at the plant near Corpus Christi. Babzien was dead at the scene after being struck by a pipe that fell from a crane.
Trafigura officials Wednesday did not immediately respond to a message for comment.
Two workers were killed in December at the same plant when a storage tank collapsed and the men fell about 60 feet.
