A 31-year-old worker died Thursday after he fell 20 feet off a natural gas rig in Towanda Township, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

At around 5:30 p.m., Greg Allen Henry, of Athens, Tennessee, was working on a Nomac Drilling site off Plank Road, two miles from Towanda, Pa.

He was attempting to dislodge a handrail while the drilling unit was being moved to another hole on the drilling pad, police said. The handrail gave way and Henry fell 20 feet, suffering a severe head injury. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Bradford County Coroner Thomas Carman. An autopsy will be conducted at a later date, police said.
