Preliminary Report Overview: 

The victim was driving a battery powered golf cart (company number 7) along the second 48 travel way at cross cut number 6-5, traveling in an outby direction. The golf cart turned over on top of him pinning him under the golf cart. A miner traveling behind the victim in a diesel vehicle (company number 7359) tried to remove the victim but couldn't move the cart. He called for help on the radio on his vehicle, and when help arrived, he and another miner pried the cart up enough to pull the victim from the cart. No pulse was found, the victim was not breathing, and his abdomen was swollen. CPR was started and continued to the surface where a paramedic took over CPR.
