Information:

Contract fitter rehosing longwall shields removed both leg transducers, effectively removing the shield leg safety circuits and allowing the roof support to fall. Another fitter had been working in the rear of the support immediately prior to the incident and would have been crushed if he had still been there. Had the shield had been fully pressurised to the roof, the fluid in the legs would have been under high pressure and when released would have had serious consequences, possibly even fatal, to anyone that it came in contact with.
