INT BASE ACCIDENTS THAT MIGHT HAVE NOT BEEN REPORTED

Post by blownforgood » Fri May 02, 2008 7:22 am

NOTE: Some passages below have been taken or summarized from the book – BLOWN FOR GOOD

SCIENTOLOGY & OSHA (NOT OSA)

There are many incidents that occurred at the Int Base that I am sure were not reported to OSHA. This is the regulatory agency that most companies or organizations that have certain activities taking place within the premises have to report up on and maintain certain safety standards so that people are not hurt performing such activities.
Some of the activities that go on at the Int Base that mandate such a regulation:
1. Automated Stamping equipment
2. Automated Print finishing machinery
3. CD stamping machinery
4. Film Lab chemical processing Laboratory
5. HVAC Engineering maintenance
6. HVAC metal work fabrication
7. Operation of Heavy Equipment (dozers, back hoes, earth movers etc.)
8. Automotive work (Int Base only)
9. Electrical High Voltage power line maintenance and installation
10. Chlorine treatment systems
11. Aeration sewage treatment systems
12. Grounds work
i. High power riding lawn mowers
ii. Edging equipment
iii. Water trucks
iv. Tree mulching equipment
v. Hydraulic Cherry pickers
13. Construction activities- including but not limited to:
a. Electric beam saws
b. Electric band saw
c. Chop saws
d. Metal Drilling
e. Electrician work
f. Plumbing
g. Arc welding
h. Gas torch welding

Anyone can see from this list there are a lot of activities that if performed in an unsafe manner could result in injury or death and often do all over the world each day. For that reason OSHA issues regulations and requirements for certain trades to follow to maintain a safe working environment. In my 15 years of working at the Int base I never saw one rule enforced or anyone train me on any rules pertaining to OSHA regulations. All the while, I am sure the Church has made sure that they have a perfect record when it comes to these things. I would remember when we would get an OSHA inspection at Gold; they take the OSHA person and would start in the areas that were no big deal while tons of people cleaned wood shavings out of table saws, emptied bags and bags of dust collector bins, move things into safe storage spots etc.

Here are some instances of accidents that have occurred at the Int base that are probably not on their list that has been reported to OSHA:

1. Gary Conley – fell 20 feet onto concrete while cleaning in garage (just after he was busted off post as IG MAA RTC) and shattered both ankles and feet. Was in wheelchair for many years and had more hardware inserted into his legs than the terminator 1, 2, or 3.

2. Uve Stuckenbrock – fell down water well and broke legs. Years later sent to PAC RPF after attempting to blow the Int Base. Later went onto to get multiple sclerosis and is possibly passed away now. Was still on PAC RPF as of 2 years ago in wheelchair with MS.

3. Mike Tomozavic. Cut off part of finger on table saw at 3AM. No was around and took him quite awhile to come out of shock and get medical attention.

4. Chuck Lemmer. Infection untreated over years resulted in chuck getting Elephantitis of the testicles. He was working in HEM making E-Meters and even though he had this infection he was still made to work at his job every day and it required that he sit. He got no special treatment whatsoever even though his balls were getting bigger and bigger each day. After several months, he was able to have surgeries and the fluids were drained and the infection handled. Ten years later he would die of Cancer that went untreated.

5. Matt Henderson – Fell from ceiling while cleaning garage and broke leg or multiple legs.


6. Paul Sarkany. Hit on head with 20 lb light that fell from Cine castle lighting grid.

7. Justin Miscavige. Crotch blown up. While shooting battle scene for a technical training film and working with pyrotechnics, a cork “mortar” was set off when he ran over it instead of AFTER he ran over it blowing chucks of cork into his face and crotch.

8. Entire Group of 20 people at once! – During a Sea Org Day competition, a tug of war contest turns nasty when the winning teams pulls so hard that the rope burnt all of the other team’s skin off their hands and required many staff get medical attention with the skin literally burnt off the inside of their fingers and hands.

9. Shannon Barnes. Same Sea Org day as above. Shannon drives a Jet Ski recklessly into concrete side of lake going 50 MPH destroying Jet Ski and almost killing himself and a passenger. After recovering and deciding that he was not good enough to be at Gold, drinks large bottle of bleach. Survives suicide attempt but it was confirmed that he was not good enough for Gold and he was sent to LA to work in PAC.

10. David Miscavige – broke leg while playing basketball! Last time he had a session was right before this in 1993. Has not been in session since.

11. David Miscavige. (THIS IS NOT A JOKE) Almost bitten on ass by swarm of thousands of red fire ants in a freakish event where they swarmed over the entire toilet in his bathroom during the night. He only discovered them at the last second before sitting down by the loud noise that they were making. (I REPEAT – NOT A JOKE - REALLY HAPPENED!!) Entire bathroom was ripped out and I guess ant proof toilet was installed.

12. David Miscavige. Almost run over by large dump truck backing up. A Grounds Dept dump truck driver (Agnese Bertolina Johnson) was backing up the large dump truck up when David Miscavige pulled up behind her on his motorcycle. As she could not see him, she continued to back up and almost crushed him between an electrical transformer and the back of the truck. He jumped off of the bike and ran around to the side of the truck and started yelling at her to stop and just missed knocking over the electrical transformer. She was “taken off the road” for this. A year later when she completed all of her extensive correction actions to get back on the road, she went home in her car that night and was never seen again.

13. David Miscavige. Almost speared to death at NEW YEARS EVENT 2000. At the start of the event David was told to stand in an exact position by the stage manager, John Thomas. This is where David would enter the stage after the opening flag procession. There were 30 girls that were flag twirlers and dancers. They all had 12 ft flags with sharp tips atop each. Behind the stage it is near pitch black with very few work lights on during the actual event. A second too soon, David Miscavige decided that he was NOT supposed to enter the stage from the spot he was told and started to move away to a different stage entry point. A fraction of a second later the flag twirlers would start exiting the stage and throwing, chucking and otherwise discarding quickly their flags into a pile at the exact spot where David Miscavige was standing. According to him (DM) he felt at least 2 flags graze his hair as he moved away from the spot. The day after the event John Thomas was assigned to the RPF. He would later get moved to the RPF in New York and years later when David Miscavige later had to go to New York to open the new renovated org there, John Thomas would be offloaded from the Sea Org so that there would be no chance that David Miscavige would be reminded of the fateful night years ago when he was almost killed by a bunch of high school girls in tights.


14. Charlie Rush. Nice Guy. In the Sea Org for 30 plus years. Constantly lifting heavy musician equipment over 30 years had taken its toll on him. He had such a bad case of hemorrhoids that went untreated for so long (due to no money for crew welfare) that the (completely unlicensed and untrained) Medical Liaison Officer, Cynthia Rathburn decided to take matters into her own hands and perform surgery on him to remove the lumps. After several unsuccessful attempts, she was removed from post and Charlie was sent to Los Angeles to be a dishwasher. I guess hemorrhoids are supposedly only local to desert areas?

15. Male staff member lost his finger while working on Dave Miscavige’s new building. Instead of using a ladder to climb down from installing some new equipment (safety and access equipment is often skimped on or just plain not used on some projects) this male staff member jumped down to a lower level structure. While on his way down his wedding ring was caught on a fixed metal object and sliced his ring finger clear off his hand. The staff member went into shock and was taken to the hospital some time later; the finger was not able to be reconnected to his hand. In this instance, you can cover up the paper trail or spin whatever story you want, this guy is missing a finger and that is that. His name is Robert Lemoine and he works in the computer programming and maintenance area of the Int Base. Robert has not been paid one single extra dime for sacrificing his finger for Dave Miscavige or the Sea Org. Make me want to give someone the finger.

16. Marc Morgan- After the electrical department serviced one of the high voltage pieces of machinery in the Manufacturing print shop; a wire was left loose and exposed. Marc accidentally touched the exposed wire and was shocked by the high voltage transformer within. He was immediately winded and fell to the ground in convulsions. After 15 minutes, he would regain proper breathing and be fine.


17. As there are too many to count, we will just get the put hand in the table saw down here. There are at least 30 instances where staff have been cutting wood and using their hands to push the wood through the table saw and voila, oops the hand is not mightier than the saw. The worst I know of was one former staff member that lost 2 fingers. One of them was partially able to be reconnected.

The Int Ranch (child prison camp) has its own bizarre accident stories that could be an entire other article, but we will list a few here to show the type of accidents that are common there.

18. A few kids were trying to connect a hitch type trailer to a large backhoe when they lost control of the trailer and dropped it. Well they dropped it on one of the kid’s feet. The kid screamed with pain and after a few minutes of screaming they went back to putting the trailer on the hitch. Later that night the kid that the trailer landed on was complaining of feeling sick and went to lay down. The next morning when we awoke, his foot was in a lot of pain. When one of the adults questioned him as to what happened, he explained and they decided that they should probably inspect his foot and as he had not taken of his boots since the incident the night before, now would be a good as any. Upon removal of the blood filled boot, they discovered that two of his toes had been mostly cut off and were simply floating in the front of his shoe with his swelled up foot. After spending a few days in the hospital they were able to re attach the toes, but they did remain disfigured and one was a bit shorter than the rest.

19. One of the teachers was performing some mechanic work on one the large school busses that was used to bring children and food back and forth between the Ranch and Golden Era Productions. This girl’s name was Jean Tomozavic. She was under the front of the bus working on the engine when a few kids started playing in the bus. They disengaged the brakes and put the bus into neutral and it rolled onto the adult were it stayed. After she started screaming the kids ran off for help and she was eventually pulled out from under the bus while several kids pushed the bus back off of her.

20. Children were encouraged to catch and kill live rattlesnakes as there was a $5 reward for any of them killed and turned in.

These are just a fraction of the “on the job” accidents. Well some accidents happen after the job. Like after you have been up for 4 days and you want to go home and take a shower or maybe even get a few hours of sleep. In the “old days,” you could drive home into Hemet and go to your berthing if you had a car or access to one. With so many staff not sleeping, I am sure that while very few could drive, the ones that did, were more prone to have an accident than most other people would think. Here are the car accidents that I can remember and jot down.

1. Danny Dunnigan. Major bike accident. “Rover” Security guard and all around nasty guy. After bike accident, no longer assigned to rover and assigned to Main Security booth.

2. Danny Dunnigan. While on security watch in the main booth after accident, left booth to confront a declared SP that drove up to the booth. Danny ends up punching out SP. SP sues the hell out of the church and wins settlement. Danny is assigned to Night Watch where…

3. Danny Dunnigan. While on Night watch Security rounds, mistook the 5 foot high loading dock at the Cine Castle for the road and drove the Black Security Nissan SUV off loading dock destroying the front suspension and wheels.

4. Danny Dunnigan – (Story fully covered in book that will make your little “SP punch out” story look like a day off! To be filled in at a later date unless court proceedings direct otherwise.) Heads up to OSA people, ask Danny about this now as it is going to cost you later on.

5. Jorge Avila – Major bike accident. Drove into ditch while on Security patrol. Destroyed bike, Broke collar bone and arm. Busted out of Security as a result and sent to work in the Sets area.

6. Jorge Avila - Major van accident. After being busted from Security and assigned to the Sets construction area, was put in charge of transporting crew to and from Sound Stage in San Bernardino called Norton Air Force Base. While driving on no sleep caused him to mis an exit, he woke up and tried to get off at the last minute. Ended up rolling a Ford – Econoline 15 passenger van 4 times and breaking every window and crushing any metal that existed on van. Even the cigarette lighter was damaged! Went into a coma and when finally came out was told that he was “taken off the road.” Later offloaded from Sea Org.

7. Megan Eisenman – Drove through red light because was late for post one morning and got T-boned by a dually truck hauling a horse trailer. Was in Coma. Totaled org car and was ordered never to drive again until through OT5 and long correction program.

8. Russ Bellin – Totaled CST Hummer.

9. Paul Sarkany (Shark) – Lost control of Camera Truck (3000lbs overloaded) after tire blowout and did a 720 degree spin out on 60 freeway. No one was hurt. Heater in truck never did work the same after that though.

10. Ted Karboski – While driving Cine Grip Truck, crappy weld on electrical generator hitch broke and generator drove off freeway by itself and landed in someone’s back yard.

11. Ro Ann Horwich (L. Ron Hubbard’s Granddaughter) – Rolled vehicle and totaled it.

12. Darius Wilhere – Crashed motorcycle on side of road in Hemet when fell asleep while driving home on highway. Was badly injured and picked up by total stranger who saw the bike on side of road with him passed out next to it.

13. After attempting or claiming to attempt to commit suicide, Darius would then end up offloaded from Gold and eventually end up in CLO LATAM where he would get in another car accident, be dead for several minutes and then get revived and sustain permanent neck and spine damage. After he was suspected to have been in communication with an ex-Base staff member, he was then sent to CLO Africa.

14. Sandi Wilhere – Car accident – near death. Recovered but now in PAC with MS.

15. Danny Barram – Car accident. Vehicle was totaled. He was not at fault, but somehow managed to contact an attorney and won a huge settlement that was kept from the Gold Execs. When execs caught on and noticed the his new vehicle and recent purchases, he was publicly berated and offloaded from the Sea Org and made to divorce his super smoking hot wife!

16. Joe Harrison – Drove down highway and kickstand supposedly fell down while he was driving, He crashed into a tree and was killed instantly.

17. Nathan Story – drove through a road barricade while on his motorcycle and badly injured both hands.

Anyone who can remember more accidents or add to the list of on the job incidents, be my guest.

I am sure John Peeler can add some of these as that was what he dealt with for years. People who had accidents were PTS and then they went to see him.

Until next time…

If you knew what I know
And I am sure you would
You would do what I did
And be BLOWNFORGOOD!

Oh BFG, you're putting me in the position now to remember a bunch of shit long forgotten. This is where I need my special OT powerz to remember people's injuries from 10 years ago plus. I don't know how you do it! In fact, I can attest to every single accident you list above! Gary Conley's accident stands out in particular for some reason as well as the missing finger incidents.

One thing that you should know is that with a staff of over 1,000 members at the base, 600 of them were considered to be PTS because of accidents or illness. The only people assigned to PTS handlings for the entire base were myself and the SSO Leslie Epstein.

For a period of 5 years, I did at least 6 PTS interviews a day as well as another 6-10 physical universe handlings a day with people that ranged from "Good Roads, Fair Weather" handlings with staff for family or disconnections or locating whole-track SP items on their case.

I will say this though, there were MANY accidents or illnesses that occured on a daily basis at the base. EVERY one of them required an interview from me or Leslie to locate the SP connected to the incident and then, handling worked out for each individual case.

BFG, you have a memory that impresses me to no end. I don't know how you do it, but you bring about memories and specific handlings with these people that should be entered in some kind of journal beyond the PC and ethics folder. Or maybe we should just report directly to OSHA?

You also forgot to mention Danny Barram who got into a car accident, and won a major injury case. Do you want to tell the rest of the story about what happened to him with the settlement money he won and how the Church fucked him in that situation?

Cheers,

I'm just curious. The blatently obvious SP at the base is DM. How many people came up with him as the item in their PTS handlings? Or are they too scared to name him? Or so deluded that they don't even spot it?

Didnt Joe Harrison get killed in a motorcycle accident there?

Also something about Brodie (Sorry - his real name escapes me...) drive a backhoe into an RTC car or something?
Mark Berther is his name.

I was never uplines, but heard about these two stories.

blownforgood,

Once again thank you for shedding more light on the internal hell of scientology!
11. David Miscavige. (THIS IS NOT A JOKE) Almost bitten on ass by swarm of thousands of red fire ants in a freakish event where they swarmed over the entire toilet in his bathroom during the night. He only discovered them at the last second before sitting down by the loud noise that they were making. (I REPEAT – NOT A JOKE - REALLY HAPPENED!!) Entire bathroom was ripped out and I guess ant proof toilet was installed.
Dang, the severe days might have ended due to fire ants. seems par for the course. :wink:

The astute video makers will have some fun with this one!

Most everytime I read one of yours or BTs2free posts I sit in dazed shock for a few moments. :shock:

I commend you both for surviving, departing and speaking out. :bowdown:

I also hope that you are both well cared for and supported greatly in your day to day lives, not only from this board and others, but with earnest caring friends and family surrounding you.

Thanks for all you share and count me in as one of the many who look forward to reading your book. :study:

SCIENTOLOGY & OSHA (NOT OSA)

There are many incidents that occurred at the Int Base that I am sure were not reported to OSHA. This is the regulatory agency that most companies or organizations that have certain activities taking place within the premises have to report up on and maintain certain safety standards so that people are not hurt performing such activities.
Some of the activities that go on at the Int Base that mandate such a regulation:
1. Automated Stamping equipment
2. Automated Print finishing machinery
3. CD stamping machinery
4. Film Lab chemical processing Laboratory
5. HVAC Engineering maintenance
6. HVAC metal work fabrication
7. Operation of Heavy Equipment (dozers, back hoes, earth movers etc.)
8. Automotive work (Int Base only)
9. Electrical High Voltage power line maintenance and installation
10. Chlorine treatment systems
11. Aeration sewage treatment systems
12. Grounds work
i. High power riding lawn mowers
ii. Edging equipment
iii. Water trucks
iv. Tree mulching equipment
v. Hydraulic Cherry pickers
13. Construction activities- including but not limited to:
a. Electric beam saws
b. Electric band saw
c. Chop saws
d. Metal Drilling
e. Electrician work
f. Plumbing
g. Arc welding
h. Gas torch welding

Anyone can see from this list there are a lot of activities that if performed in an unsafe manner could result in injury or death and often do all over the world each day. For that reason OSHA issues regulations and requirements for certain trades to follow to maintain a safe working environment. In my 15 years of working at the Int base I never saw one rule enforced or anyone train me on any rules pertaining to OSHA regulations. All the while, I am sure the Church has made sure that they have a perfect record when it comes to these things. I would remember when we would get an OSHA inspection at Gold; they take the OSHA person and would start in the areas that were no big deal while tons of people cleaned wood shavings out of table saws, emptied bags and bags of dust collector bins, move things into safe storage spots etc.

Here are some instances of accidents that have occurred at the Int base that are probably not on their list that has been reported to OSHA:

1. Gary Conley – fell 20 feet onto concrete while cleaning in garage (just after he was busted off post as IG MAA RTC) and shattered both ankles and feet. Was in wheelchair for many years and had more hardware inserted into his legs than the terminator 1, 2, or 3.

2. Uve Stuckenbrock – fell down water well and broke legs. Years later sent to PAC RPF after attempting to blow the Int Base. Later went onto to get multiple sclerosis and is possibly passed away now. Was still on PAC RPF as of 2 years ago in wheelchair with MS.

3. Mike Tomozavic. Cut off part of finger on table saw at 3AM. No was around and took him quite awhile to come out of shock and get medical attention.

4. Chuck Lemmer. Infection untreated over years resulted in chuck getting Elephantitis of the testicles. He was working in HEM making E-Meters and even though he had this infection he was still made to work at his job every day and it required that he sit. He got no special treatment whatsoever even though his balls were getting bigger and bigger each day. After several months, he was able to have surgeries and the fluids were drained and the infection handled. Ten years later he would die of Cancer that went untreated.

5. Matt Henderson – Fell from ceiling while cleaning garage and broke leg or multiple legs.


6. Paul Sarkany. Hit on head with 20 lb light that fell from Cine castle lighting grid.

7. Justin Miscavige. Crotch blown up. While shooting battle scene for a technical training film and working with pyrotechnics, a cork “mortar” was set off when he ran over it instead of AFTER he ran over it blowing chucks of cork into his face and crotch.

8. Entire Group of 20 people at once! – During a Sea Org Day competition, a tug of war contest turns nasty when the winning teams pulls so hard that the rope burnt all of the other team’s skin off their hands and required many staff get medical attention with the skin literally burnt off the inside of their fingers and hands.

9. Shannon Barnes. Same Sea Org day as above. Shannon drives a Jet Ski recklessly into concrete side of lake going 50 MPH destroying Jet Ski and almost killing himself and a passenger. After recovering and deciding that he was not good enough to be at Gold, drinks large bottle of bleach. Survives suicide attempt but it was confirmed that he was not good enough for Gold and he was sent to LA to work in PAC.

10. David Miscavige – broke leg while playing basketball! Last time he had a session was right before this in 1993. Has not been in session since.

11. David Miscavige. (THIS IS NOT A JOKE) Almost bitten on ass by swarm of thousands of red fire ants in a freakish event where they swarmed over the entire toilet in his bathroom during the night. He only discovered them at the last second before sitting down by the loud noise that they were making. (I REPEAT – NOT A JOKE - REALLY HAPPENED!!) Entire bathroom was ripped out and I guess ant proof toilet was installed.

12. David Miscavige. Almost run over by large dump truck backing up. A Grounds Dept dump truck driver (Agnese Bertolina Johnson) was backing up the large dump truck up when David Miscavige pulled up behind her on his motorcycle. As she could not see him, she continued to back up and almost crushed him between an electrical transformer and the back of the truck. He jumped off of the bike and ran around to the side of the truck and started yelling at her to stop and just missed knocking over the electrical transformer. She was “taken off the road” for this. A year later when she completed all of her extensive correction actions to get back on the road, she went home in her car that night and was never seen again.

13. David Miscavige. Almost speared to death at NEW YEARS EVENT 2000. At the start of the event David was told to stand in an exact position by the stage manager, John Thomas. This is where David would enter the stage after the opening flag procession. There were 30 girls that were flag twirlers and dancers. They all had 12 ft flags with sharp tips atop each. Behind the stage it is near pitch black with very few work lights on during the actual event. A second too soon, David Miscavige decided that he was NOT supposed to enter the stage from the spot he was told and started to move away to a different stage entry point. A fraction of a second later the flag twirlers would start exiting the stage and throwing, chucking and otherwise discarding quickly their flags into a pile at the exact spot where David Miscavige was standing. According to him (DM) he felt at least 2 flags graze his hair as he moved away from the spot. The day after the event John Thomas was assigned to the RPF. He would later get moved to the RPF in New York and years later when David Miscavige later had to go to New York to open the new renovated org there, John Thomas would be offloaded from the Sea Org so that there would be no chance that David Miscavige would be reminded of the fateful night years ago when he was almost killed by a bunch of high school girls in tights.


14. Charlie Rush. Nice Guy. In the Sea Org for 30 plus years. Constantly lifting heavy musician equipment over 30 years had taken its toll on him. He had such a bad case of hemorrhoids that went untreated for so long (due to no money for crew welfare) that the (completely unlicensed and untrained) Medical Liaison Officer, Cynthia Rathburn decided to take matters into her own hands and perform surgery on him to remove the lumps. After several unsuccessful attempts, she was removed from post and Charlie was sent to Los Angeles to be a dishwasher. I guess hemorrhoids are supposedly only local to desert areas?

15. Male staff member lost his finger while working on Dave Miscavige’s new building. Instead of using a ladder to climb down from installing some new equipment (safety and access equipment is often skimped on or just plain not used on some projects) this male staff member jumped down to a lower level structure. While on his way down his wedding ring was caught on a fixed metal object and sliced his ring finger clear off his hand. The staff member went into shock and was taken to the hospital some time later; the finger was not able to be reconnected to his hand. In this instance, you can cover up the paper trail or spin whatever story you want, this guy is missing a finger and that is that. His name is Robert Lemoine and he works in the computer programming and maintenance area of the Int Base. Robert has not been paid one single extra dime for sacrificing his finger for Dave Miscavige or the Sea Org. Make me want to give someone the finger.

16. Marc Morgan- After the electrical department serviced one of the high voltage pieces of machinery in the Manufacturing print shop; a wire was left loose and exposed. Marc accidentally touched the exposed wire and was shocked by the high voltage transformer within. He was immediately winded and fell to the ground in convulsions. After 15 minutes, he would regain proper breathing and be fine.


17. As there are too many to count, we will just get the put hand in the table saw down here. There are at least 30 instances where staff have been cutting wood and using their hands to push the wood through the table saw and voila, oops the hand is not mightier than the saw. The worst I know of was one former staff member that lost 2 fingers. One of them was partially able to be reconnected.

The Int Ranch (child prison camp) has its own bizarre accident stories that could be an entire other article, but we will list a few here to show the type of accidents that are common there.

18. A few kids were trying to connect a hitch type trailer to a large backhoe when they lost control of the trailer and dropped it. Well they dropped it on one of the kid’s feet. The kid screamed with pain and after a few minutes of screaming they went back to putting the trailer on the hitch. Later that night the kid that the trailer landed on was complaining of feeling sick and went to lay down. The next morning when we awoke, his foot was in a lot of pain. When one of the adults questioned him as to what happened, he explained and they decided that they should probably inspect his foot and as he had not taken of his boots since the incident the night before, now would be a good as any. Upon removal of the blood filled boot, they discovered that two of his toes had been mostly cut off and were simply floating in the front of his shoe with his swelled up foot. After spending a few days in the hospital they were able to re attach the toes, but they did remain disfigured and one was a bit shorter than the rest.

19. One of the teachers was performing some mechanic work on one the large school busses that was used to bring children and food back and forth between the Ranch and Golden Era Productions. This girl’s name was Jean Tomozavic. She was under the front of the bus working on the engine when a few kids started playing in the bus. They disengaged the brakes and put the bus into neutral and it rolled onto the adult were it stayed. After she started screaming the kids ran off for help and she was eventually pulled out from under the bus while several kids pushed the bus back off of her.

20. Children were encouraged to catch and kill live rattlesnakes as there was a $5 reward for any of them killed and turned in.

These are just a fraction of the “on the job” accidents. Well some accidents happen after the job. Like after you have been up for 4 days and you want to go home and take a shower or maybe even get a few hours of sleep. In the “old days,” you could drive home into Hemet and go to your berthing if you had a car or access to one. With so many staff not sleeping, I am sure that while very few could drive, the ones that did, were more prone to have an accident than most other people would think. Here are the car accidents that I can remember and jot down.

1. Danny Dunnigan. Major bike accident. “Rover” Security guard and all around nasty guy. After bike accident, no longer assigned to rover and assigned to Main Security booth.

2. Danny Dunnigan. While on security watch in the main booth after accident, left booth to confront a declared SP that drove up to the booth. Danny ends up punching out SP. SP sues the hell out of the church and wins settlement. Danny is assigned to Night Watch where…

3. Danny Dunnigan. While on Night watch Security rounds, mistook the 5 foot high loading dock at the Cine Castle for the road and drove the Black Security Nissan SUV off loading dock destroying the front suspension and wheels.

4. Danny Dunnigan – (Story fully covered in book that will make your little “SP punch out” story look like a day off! To be filled in at a later date unless court proceedings direct otherwise.) Heads up to OSA people, ask Danny about this now as it is going to cost you later on.

5. Jorge Avila – Major bike accident. Drove into ditch while on Security patrol. Destroyed bike, Broke collar bone and arm. Busted out of Security as a result and sent to work in the Sets area.

6. Jorge Avila - Major van accident. After being busted from Security and assigned to the Sets construction area, was put in charge of transporting crew to and from Sound Stage in San Bernardino called Norton Air Force Base. While driving on no sleep caused him to mis an exit, he woke up and tried to get off at the last minute. Ended up rolling a Ford – Econoline 15 passenger van 4 times and breaking every window and crushing any metal that existed on van. Even the cigarette lighter was damaged! Went into a coma and when finally came out was told that he was “taken off the road.” Later offloaded from Sea Org.

7. Megan Eisenman – Drove through red light because was late for post one morning and got T-boned by a dually truck hauling a horse trailer. Was in Coma. Totaled org car and was ordered never to drive again until through OT5 and long correction program.

8. Russ Bellin – Totaled CST Hummer.

9. Paul Sarkany (Shark) – Lost control of Camera Truck (3000lbs overloaded) after tire blowout and did a 720 degree spin out on 60 freeway. No one was hurt. Heater in truck never did work the same after that though.

10. Ted Karboski – While driving Cine Grip Truck, crappy weld on electrical generator hitch broke and generator drove off freeway by itself and landed in someone’s back yard.

11. Ro Ann Horwich (L. Ron Hubbard’s Granddaughter) – Rolled vehicle and totaled it.

12. Darius Wilhere – Crashed motorcycle on side of road in Hemet when fell asleep while driving home on highway. Was badly injured and picked up by total stranger who saw the bike on side of road with him passed out next to it.

13. After attempting or claiming to attempt to commit suicide, Darius would then end up offloaded from Gold and eventually end up in CLO LATAM where he would get in another car accident, be dead for several minutes and then get revived and sustain permanent neck and spine damage. After he was suspected to have been in communication with an ex-Base staff member, he was then sent to CLO Africa.

14. Sandi Wilhere – Car accident – near death. Recovered but now in PAC with MS.

15. Danny Barram – Car accident. Vehicle was totaled. He was not at fault, but somehow managed to contact an attorney and won a huge settlement that was kept from the Gold Execs. When execs caught on and noticed the his new vehicle and recent purchases, he was publicly berated and offloaded from the Sea Org and made to divorce his super smoking hot wife!

16. Joe Harrison – Drove down highway and kickstand supposedly fell down while he was driving, He crashed into a tree and was killed instantly.

17. Nathan Story – drove through a road barricade while on his motorcycle and badly injured both hands.

Anyone who can remember more accidents or add to the list of on the job incidents, be my guest.

I am sure John Peeler can add some of these as that was what he dealt with for years. People who had accidents were PTS and then they went to see him.

Until next time…
BFG
18. David Miscavige.NON INTERNATIONAL BASE INCIDENT.FORT HARRISON HOTEL. During the premier of the sci drug film Clear mind, Clear body, One Davey Miscaviage was on stage. During DM,s long and boring diatribe, above his head a Vari Light stage fixture caught fire . Then fell to the stage floor, to his left, 3 feet from his person. This vari light was insulated with foam core and Gator board to quiet its internal fan, which overrode the units safety and also violated local fire ordiances .The SO in charge was made aware of this potential fire hazard by the providers of the stage lighting. The lighting engineers where outside labor, not C of S. I was witness to this event, as where many others.

blownforgood, can you list all the Hubbard children and grandchildren (and great-grandchildren) still working for CoS? Did any blow?

I wish I had your memory. Thanks for the details.

How about the accident where Bill Brugger almost killed himself driving an org motorcycle. Reported reason for accident was that the handlebar t-connection (whatever you call it) became undone and he lost control of the motorcycle, hitting the highway head-on. A miracle in itself he survived. He lost an eye, a cheekbone and an ear which had to be prosthetically rebuilt. (Well, I guess that means it was reported since I can't imagine any unqualified MLO to try and build prosthetic facial parts, but as to the actual circumstances surrounding the accident, who knows.)

To add to the list of DM's "accidents," he claimed in one Base "briefing" (read: "toasting") that some staff member had purposely brought a black widow spider into his bedroom, above his bed, that he had to find and handle. This was supposedly just another example of how he is surrounded by SPs trying to knock him off.

During the same SO Day as the "tug-of-war" incident (where at least one person actually broke some of their fingers) took place, Myriel Dufresne twisted or broke her knee during "silly races" so as to be on crutches for months and she is having trouble with her leg to this day -- and this is like 7 or more years later!

Another pretty nasty one: Misha Priv was by the loading dock and a delivery truck backed up to crush both of his knees between the bumper and the dock.

Man, there were so many people on crutches so often...

Like John Brousseau, who went mountain climbing on one of the few days off he ever had, fell down and broke his leg.

Motorcycle accidents were certainly frequent, thanks to no or little sleep.

But people managed to have accident with even golf carts. One time someone backed over another staff member, dragging them on the ground under the cart for several feet, as they "didn't notice" she was under the cart (while yelling rather loudly).

Now a whole different category was things that simply lived up to no regulations whatsoever. People being sent during renos to clean up (without proper equipment and protective gear) places that were not meant for human entrance, such as under Del Sol (the building that was CMO Int and ESI and became Qual Gold HCG). The room under the building was accupiable by rats at best, and had almost not enough room to get a person's body to fit there; and of course this is during the hot days of the summer, etc.

Protective gear was not a great big concern usually, for it cost money, and people were virtually for free. How did Steve Willett lose his voice? Don't know, but that happened when he became the Estates Sec, somewhere between renovating Building 36 for CMU and the beginnings of the new berthing buildings. And his voice has never come back to normal.

---

BFG,

Danny Barram managed to make it through the RPF and is now posted in the PAC mill, along with some other ex-Int Base staff.

Uwe was alive as of a year ago, but no longer physically able to attend any RPF activities, so was kept in some off-site location where he listened to the Congresses, as that was about all he could do any more.

---

Don Carlo,

The only ones of Hubbard's children and grandchildren to still work for the CoS are his daughter Diana and granddaughter Roanne.

Thanks, Little Bear Victor. I see Roanne's last name is Leake, and she's an electrician at Gold. Is everyone at Gold in Sea Org? About how old is she? Who is her father?

I see Diana's last name is Ryan, and she is an IMPR speechwriter. Is she Roanne's mother?

Do you know the names of the grandchildren that have blown CoS? And, whose child they were? If we could get one to contest the suspicious final Hubbard will, that would be great. I know CoS settled with various Hubbard descendants, but it may be that those settlements were coerced and thus invalid.

In 1994 on PAC renos a guy was working on a plumbing project without goggles and got a copper pipe rammed through his eye. I am sorry I can't remember his name right now, but I am sure I am not the only one who knows. He was "fitness boarded" out of the Sea Org shortly after this.

Aside from the obvious safety violations, are these people qualified to work as plumber, electricians and so forth? Or are they just pulled into these jobs and told to "make them go right?"
