It was a close call for some Hibernia workers last weekend in what the company calls 'a high potential near miss'.
Four people were working on the gravity-based structure roof slab Sunday when two waves came over the top and struck them.
Two of the employees lost their footing and fell with one sustaining minor cuts to a hand. The Hibernia Management and Development Company says workers were wearing immersion suits at the time of the incident.
So "Two waves came over the top and struck them." clearly indicates this is indeed an encounter of freaque waves in the North Atlantic Ocean.
