Less than a week after fire damaged a Gulf of Mexico drilling platform, the search is still on for three missing workers.
Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex, officials claim the response of emergency crews contained the blaze to one part of the platform complex, preventing oil from spilling into the ocean.
At least four people were killed and 45 were injured in the blaze which broke out at three in the morning. 300 people were forced to leave the rig with some jumping in the water to escape the flames.
It’s still not known what caused the fire.
