The story of how the BP oil drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico, "Deepwater Horizon", was destroyed on April 20, 2010, causing the worst oil spill in History.

Scott Pelley investigates the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion that killed 11, causing the ongoing oil leak in the waters off of Louisiana. One survivor talks about his harrowing escape and what happened after he got off the burning rig. In an exclusive interview with 60 Minutes, Mike Williams, the Deepwater Horizon's Chief Electronics Technician in charge of the oil rigs computers and electrical systems, provides a first-hand account of what happened in the run-up to the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico that has resulted in the largest environmental disaster in history.



"It's a raging inferno..." Once the Deepwater Horizon's chief electronics technician Mike Williams got topside, he started looking for other survivors.
"We're gonna burn up or we're gonna jump." With the most easily accessible lifeboats gone, Deepwater Horizon's chief electronics technician Mike Williams ended up having to jump from the burning rig.
"I must be dead." When Mike Williams jumped in the water, his troubles were far from over.
Albert Andry, Dustin King, Ryan Chaisson & Westley Bourg were fishing right next to the oil rig Deepwater Horizon as the blowout began. As a former oil rig worker, Bourg recognized the sounds of danger.
