Debris and oil from the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform float in the Gulf of Mexico after the rig sank on April 22, 2010. The mobile offshore drilling platform was engulfed in flames after an explosion April 20, and sank two days later. Eleven missing workers are feared dead. The Coast Guard said on April 23, 2010 that no oil appeared to be leaking from the well head on the ocean floor, some 5000 feet below. UPI/Coast Guard/HO
