The Giant Oil Rig Explosion of the Gulf of Mexico

If you watch the news from time to time, then you know that an oil drilling platform has just recently exploded 50 miles off the Louisiana coasts.

126 workers were aboard the Deepwater Horizon rig when it blew up. 100 workers made it to the supply boats but 11 are still missing, seventeen were injured, four of them critically.

They still don’t know for sure what is at the source of the incident, the investigation is still going on…

Those pictures are very impressive, look at the size of the flames and how big the smoke cloud is! A lot of work for the fireboats and coast guards and a lot of pain and sadness for the families directly concerned by the accident…
