The Coshocton County Coroner's Office is looking into the cause of death of a Noble County man who was found unresponsive at an oil well site Monday afternoon near Newcomerstown.
Deputies were called to 6075 State Route 36 SW in Oxford Township at 6:22 p.m.
Witnesses reported that Travis Burch, 36, Dexter City, walked behind an oil rig he was working at, and came back to the front stumbling. Burch then collapsed and was unresponsive.
EMTs were called to the scene. They found that Burch had little to no pulse. He was then transported to Coshocton Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Written statements were taken from all of his co-workers who were present.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was called to investigate, but Sheriff Orvis Campbell said there were no obvious signs that it was an industrial accident.
Foul play is not suspected.
