The pictures below are a result of a farmer using a post hole digger without calling for “locates” and he hit an underground high-pressure cross country gas pipe. They never did find the guy. Took out 2 homes.

At first, when I read that they never found the guy, I thought, "What, he did this and hasn't been caught?" Then I looked at the bigger picture and realised what you meant by "never found" him. :shock:

It's quite a grusome thing to happen to someone.

I would think it would have been a quick death judging by the pictures.
