Jeffery Babzien Dies When a Metal Pipe fell from a Crane at the Trafigura EF-90 plant South Texas Storage Terminal Complex in Corpus Christi, Texas

Corpus Christi, Texas — Contract worker Jeffery Babzien was killed when a metal pipe fell from a crane at the Trafigura EF-90 plant. The incident happened Monday at the South Texas storage terminal complex.

Babzien was pronounced dead at the scene.

This incident follows another tragedy at the same complex in December, when two workers died after a tank collapsed, causing them to fall about 60 feet.

This is an unacceptable workplace incident that must be investigated

How could this happen? The fact that an innocent man or woman could go to work and be hit by a falling pipe is unacceptable. This is not a risk that we should tolerate and the company or person responsible for this must be held accountable.

The safety procedures of the company need to be examined. The actions of the employees and contractors need to be investigated. The surviving family deserves answers and justice for the wrongdoing that cost their loved one his life.

May the family receive the help they need during this difficult time of grief.
