CAMPECHE, Mexico — Seven oil workers who spent three days
drifting on a life raft in the Gulf of Mexico have been rescued, BBC News reported.
Pemex, Mexico’s state oil company, said two bodies were also
found and the search continues for a third man.
The contractors evacuated their offshore vessel, known as a
liftboat, after it was hit by Tropical Storm Nate and took to a life raft.
Trinity II liftboat was being used by Geokinetics, a Texas-based company
carrying out research work in the Gulf of Mexico.
