On Sunday 11th July 2005, the SMU4 welding crew at KP26.9 suffered an LTI. During preparation for stabbing of the 8th pipe length (7th joint) the hot pass welding crews were setting up. Without warning the pipe string, around 77m shifted in a downhill direction and fell into the RoW, away from the access road. The welder on the RoW side of the 6th joint was caught by the pipe and crushed beneath it. The side boom was used to free the welder and he was evacuated to hospital. The welder suffered 4 broken ribs and multiple contusions. His relatively light injuries were due to the boggy ground conditions.
