The Eagle Ford Shale oil and gas fields in South Texas are providing thousands of workers with steady jobs and good paychecks. But the work is coming at a cost. Since 2009 at least 11 employees working in the Eagle Ford have died. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigated the deaths and said they could have been prevented had adequate safety measures been taken.
