Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hours

I have never worked offshore, I can only imagine what it must be like. I know many of you do, or have friends and family that work to supply energy to America and the world. This article from the New York Times is one of the most engaging pieces I have read in a very long time. It is a lengthy article but one that I believe is well worth your time. You will find yourself on board the DeepWater Horizon on that fateful day, you will feel the emotion and know the bravery of so many. You will feel the pain and the loss as well. 

Crew members were cut down by shrapnel, hurled across rooms and buried under smoking wreckage. Some were swallowed by fireballs that raced through the oil rig’s shattered interior. Dazed and battered survivors, half-naked and dripping in highly combustible gas, crawled inch by inch in pitch darkness, willing themselves to the lifeboat deck.
