POSTER # Logging 16-88

The Rigging Slinger stopped the turn and went in to check the rigging (he thought a choker had slipped off). He then went straight out, about 38 feet, and blew "go-ahead." Directly above him was a 56-foot log lying crossways under the turn. As the turn moved ahead it caused the cross log to swing down the hill, striking the Rigging Slinger on the head.
