7 of 10 Missing Offshore Workers Found Alive

Seven of 10 oil workers missing in the Gulf of Mexico were found alive Sunday after three days at sea, according to Mexico's state oil company.

Petroleos Mexicanos said in the statement that two bodies also were found but have yet to be identified and one worker remains missing.

The survivors were four Mexicans, two Americans and a worker from Bangladesh, the statement said. They were found 51 miles (82 kilometers) off the coast of the gulf state of Campeche. Their identities have not yet been released.

The employees of Houston-based Geokinetics Inc. called for help Thursday afternoon after evacuating to an enclosed life raft in the middle of Tropical Storm Nate, which disabled their vessel, a liftboat called the Trinity II.
