According to CNN.com, another oil rig has exploded off of the coast of the state of Louisiana.
There were thirteen people working that are all accounted for, and thank goodness, only one is injured. This comes soon after theBP oil rig explosion where workers were killed, and the lengthy, deadly process it took to finally cap that well off.
Helicopters were out all morning searching for survivors, when they found that the thirteen workers had survived. This oil rig explosion happened eighty miles south of Vermillion Bay on the Louisiana coastline. This report on CNN comes from the Coastguard itself.
The Vermillion Oil Rig is owned by Mariner Energy, which is owned by a company is Houston, Texas. Coastguard and officials are still determining what has happened, how much damage needs to be assessed and what the ramifications are. Hopefully this will not be as tragic as the BP oil spill that killed humans, animals and fish alike.
