How Merlin died

Contributor: Will Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

"Merlin was working on the North slope of Alaska in 1969 during the construction of the Alaska pipeline. He was working way out in the "bush" in a camp. They worked 42 day shifts followed by a 7 day break, and most of the workers would use the 7 days to go home. Merlin had completed his 42 days shift and had gone home to his family. While he was gone home, people that remained at the camp had poured a concrete floor for a building under construction. When Merlin returned to the camp he another of the supervisors were inspecting the new concrete floor and it collapsed on them and killed them both." related from Laurie Christensen, Merlin's oldest son.
