CHEYENNE — A man has died almost two weeks after he fell 60 feet from an oil rig in Converse County.
The Wyoming state worker's safety office said 50-year-old Mitchell Lemley, of Riverton, fell Feb. 2 at the drilling rig 22 miles north of Douglas. He died Feb. 15.
Lemley worked for Casper-based SST Energy, which was drilling the well for another company.
It was the second death in Wyoming's oil and gas industry this year. An exploding pipe killed a worker at a rig in the Pinedale area in January.
