THE GIANT OIL RIG EXPLOSION OF THE GULF OF MEXICO

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. 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.
