At least 18 oil workers were killed when a Mexican drilling rig
At least 18 oil workers were killed when a Mexican drilling rig hit a Pemex's oil platform in stormy weather, spilling gas and oil into the Gulf of Mexico, the state-owned oil company said Wednesday.
Seven workers were still missing.
The workers killed included four Pemex employees, seven employees of the subcontractor company that operated the rig, at least one rescue boat crew member and six others who worked for other companies, Pemex said.
One woman was among the dead.
