Apr 23, 2010 ... Crude oil
could be spilling into waters
off Louisiana coast • Hopes
fade for 11 workers missing
after explosion and fire.

Thanks to John Smietana, former
Master Tug Captain and one of his
buddies on an  ocean going tug that
belongs to a company he worked for,  
these are some close-up pictures of
the fire and sinking of the Deep Water
Horizon rig.
