Mile-Long Oil Sheen Spreading From Site of Platform

NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) - The Coast Guard is saying that a
mile-long oil sheen is spreading from the site off an offshore
petroleum platform that exploded in the Gulf of Mexico off
Louisiana.
The site of the explosion is west of where BP's massive spill
occurred.
The Coast Guard said no one was killed Thursday in the
explosion. The blast was spotted by a commercial helicopter flying
over the site.
All 13 people aboard the rig were found floating in the water in
survival gear.
