Gulf Oil Spill

Stephen Stone, a Transocean, Ltd. employee and survivor of the Deep Horizon explosion, testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, May 27, 201...

A worker injured when an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico tells Congress that the companies in charge of the doomed U.S. drilling operation cut corners and neglected maintenance in a race toward higher profits.
Laborer Stephen Stone told the House Judiciary Committee Thursday that the companies gambled with workers' lives.
Oil has been leaking the Gulf since the Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20, killing 11 workers.
But Jimmy Harrell, the Deepwater Horizon's offshore installation manager, told a panel of Coast Guard and Minerals Management Service officials at a separate hearing Thursday near New Orleans that he did not feel pressured at all.
