A 45-year-old Midland man died last week from an apparent electrocution on an oilfield lease near Goldsmith, Texas.
According to a report from OA Online, the man was an employee of GE Oil and Gas. He was identified as Bradley Richard Bell.
Emergency responders were called to an electrical control building by fellow workers who reportedly discovered the worker dead. The man’s associates had tracked Bell by GPS after struggling to get in touch with him.
The sheriff’s office was investigating the case as an unattended death apparently caused by electrocution.
