A worker on an Apache-owned offshore platform off the coast of Louisiana died in an accident last week. The accident occurred on Wednesday morning, when the worker Joseph Bruno, was on a swing rope from a vessel to the offshore platform. He lost his balance and fell into the water.
Other workers nearby were able to quickly pull him out of the water, but he died soon after. Bruno was an employee of HIS Fire and Safety Company based in Delcambre. He was a fire watcher, and had been a part of an HIS team that had been hired by Apache to perform maintenance work on the platform.
