FALLS CITY -- Six workers are being treated at area hospitals this afternoon for injuries suffered during a Sept. 24 incident at an oil rig site operated by Freeport-McMoRan Oil and Gas on C.R. 207 west of here. The site is located just off F.M. 791.

Karnes County Sheriff Dwayne Villanueva said via telephone that the workers were scalded by steam and boiling hot water that burst from a pipe at approximately 10:47 a.m. Details were sketchy, but he said four workers who suffered second- and third-degree burns were airlifted to the San Antonio Military Medical Center. Two others were transported via personal vehicles to unknown hospitals.

The sheriff said deputies and members of the Karnes County Emergency Medical Services remained at the scene for at least an hour. Villanueva did not have the names or identities of those injured.
