A 43-year-old Victoria man was killed when a heavy piece of equipment fell on him at a natural gas drilling site in Ohio.

David Zamora went to Ohio three weeks ago on a job with Lee Specialties, a wireline equipment company, his sister-in-law, Lori Zamora, said.

Zamora had told his girlfriend he hoped to be back in Victoria in a week, she said.

The Belmont County Sheriff's Office received a call about the accident at the Rice Energy drilling site about 3 p.m. Saturday, a dispatcher said. The family was notified late Saturday night, Zamora said.

The family is still in the process of finding out details about the accident and making funeral arrangements, Zamora said.

"We are all devastated," she said.

David is survived by his son, Dylan Zamora, 10; his girlfriend, Heather Carr; his brothers, Michael Zamora, James Zamora and John Zamora; and his parents, Santiago Zamora and Lucy Zamora.
