National Geographic Channel is airing what promises to be an epic recount of the explosion and rescue of the 126 oil rig workers by the US Coast Guard. It’s one of America’s biggest environmental disasters and the largest oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico since 1979. Now, as experts scramble to stop the oil leak, NGC will reveal what happened to the Deepwater Horizon as a blowout tore it apart, killing 11 of the 126 men on board, sending oil toward the coastlines of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
Below the fold, National Geographic has allowed us to provide our readers with a sneak peak of a couple clips. This will not be one to miss!
