As crews searched Sunday for a Filipino worker still missing after an oil platform explosion and fire, doctors said one of four men burned in the blaze is improving and is now in fair condition.
The victims were employees of Grand Isle Shipyard Inc., which provides workers to Black Elk Energy Offshore Operations, a Houston-based independent oil and gas company, reported by the USA Today.
The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, which enforces offshore drilling regulations, is investigating.
The incident occurred a day after oil giant BP agreed to pay a record $4.5 billion in penalties the 2010 Gulf oil spill that killed 11 workers and spewed 4.9 million barrels of oil, reported by the Reuters.
