The injured man, 21-year-old Alex Cox, told the sheriff that he and the other victim were using drilling equipment and hadnít hooked up a safety line designed to keep it from swinging around and striking workers.



The dead manís name hasnít been released.



Cox fell backward and suffered a severe laceration to the back of his head.



Media reports said the rig is owned by R.E. Gas Development, a subsidiary of Rex Energy Corp.
