Body found near oil platform in Gulf
On Saturday evening divers found a body that may be one of the two workers who went missing when a Black Elk oil platform off the coast of Louisiana caught fire Friday.
The body was found by divers contracted by Black Elk Energy, which owns the platform off the coast of Louisiana, on Saturday evening while they were inspecting the structure, said Coast Guard spokesman Carlos Vega.
Vega said he could not confirm whether the body was one of two workers who went missing after the platform fire on Friday.
He referred additional questions to Black Elk officials, who have not returned calls seeking comment.
