Burning Oil Rig Sinks In Gulf Of Mexico; 11 Still Missing: RIP!

By Frank James

The burning off-shore oil platform Deepwater Horizon has sunk in the Gulf of Mexico, according to reports.

The rig experienced an explosion Tuesday night. Of the 126 person crew, 11 were still missing of this writing with the Coast Guard continuing its search mission for them.

Crews searched by air and water for 11 workers still missing from the Deepwater Horizon, though one relative said family members have been told it's unlikely anyone survived Tuesday night's blast.
Supply vessels had been shooting water into the rig try to control the flames enough to keep it afloat, but it sank Thursday morning, Coast Guard Petty Officer Katherine McNamara said.
