DIMOCK, Pa. - A worker at a natural gas drilling site in northeastern Pennsylvania has died after being hit on the head by a pipe.
The Luzerne County coroner's office identified the victim as 41-year-old Gregory Walker.
Walker was working at a Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. drilling rig in Dimock Township, Susquehanna County when he was hurt Monday morning. He was taken to a hospital in Montrose and then flown by helicopter to Geisinger Wyoming Valley Hospital in Wilkes-Barre, where he died Monday afternoon.
The coroner's office ruled the death as accidental.
Cabot spokesman George Stark says Walker worked for a subcontractor.
