Oil rig explodes in Louisiana lake injuring multiple people, police say

Oct. 15, 2017

 

"KENNER, La. -- An oil rig exploded Sunday night in Lake Pontchartrain in St. Charles Parish, a Louisiana police department said.

Kenner Police Department spokesman Sgt. Brian McGregor said Sunday evening that rescue boats are being sent from the Kenner Boat Launch, and that officials with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office are assisting, The Times-Picayune reported.

There were "a lot of injuries," many of them serious, with at least seven confirmed and more expected, McGregor said.

Initial reports said six people were injured and one person was missing. No additional details on the status of the injured have been given. No deaths have been reported.

CBS affiliate WWL-TV reports that the Coast Guard New Orleans Division has a small boat and helicopter responding to the scene. The station writes that one person is unaccounted for.

WWL-TV says five people were taken to the University Medical Center and two people were taken to the East Jefferson General Hospital.

"We believe there is still one unaccounted for," Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joe Lopinto said. "We are treating it as a search and rescue."

Worker Still Missing After Texas Chemical Plant Explosion

March 16, 2018   AP report

"(CRESSON, Texas) — Hazardous materials crews have resumed the search for a worker who is missing and presumed dead following an explosion at a Texas chemical plant that injured two co-workers.

Texas Department of Public Safety Staff Sgt. Earl Gillum says recovery crews are using heavy equipment Friday to clear burned debris at the Tri-Chem Industries plant in Cresson, 50 miles (80 kilometers) southwest of Dallas.

Investigators believe a worker dragging his foot along the floor while chemicals were being mixed sparked Thursday’s explosion. That worker is hospitalized with critical burns. Another worker was treated for less severe injuries."

"SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. - Officials are continuing to increase the radius around the site of an explosion in downtown Sun Prairie, according to officials with the police department. 

After the explosion leveled several buildings and sent two firefighters and a police officer to the hospital Tuesday, officials are saying all of the gas leaks are now contained. 

The explosion is at the intersection of Main and Bristol streets. Evacuations are underway at this time within a half-mile radius, and police are asking people to avoid the area "because it is not safe."
