Another gas well accident by kim0917

There was yet another gas well accident, this one involving a man who fell down a well shaft.  Reports vary slightly as to the dimensions of the shaft and how far he fell before getting wedged.  Thankfully, he’s still alive and was taken to the hospital.

There are some questions left un-answered by the news stories.  None of the reports we read (all listed below) mention the name of the company or name of the victim.  Further, none of them say how he might have managed to fall down the well.  Was it left uncovered?  Was there a fence around it?  What was the man doing on this property?  Was he an employee of the gas company?  Was he trespassing?  What was his business with this well?  Finally, what are the regulations concerning these well holes?  If it was un-covered, why was it allowed to be?
