Blowout: BP’s deadly oil rig disaster [USA]

...[A]t 10pm last Tuesday, [oil rig] Deepwater Horizon’s lights went out...Moments later...the Deepwater Horizon exploded into a fireball...Kurt Arnold, a Houston lawyer with a pending case against Transocean [the firm that owned the rig] said: “The reality is that as we push and push into deeper exploration, deaths and injuries are more of a problem”… It is still unclear what caused the accident but it appears to have been a blowout...Less than 36 hours passed before BP [which had hired the rig] and Transocean were hit with the first lawsuit [filed on behalf of] one of the 11 missing, now presumed dead…It will be months before the cause of the disaster is determined and years before the last payouts are made.
