2. You know sometimes articles do not make any sense.

My prayers go out to the families of the burned and especially the missing.

My contest with this article is with this section:

The blaze, which started Friday while workers were using a torch to cut an oil line, severely burned at least four workers. Their burns were not as extensive as initially reported, said Leslie Hoffman, a spokeswoman for Black Elk Energy, which owned the platform.

Officials at Baton Rouge General Medical Center said Saturday that two men remained in critical condition, while two men remained in serious condition. All four, who are being treated in a burn unit, are employees of oilfield contractor Grand Isle Shipyard and are from the Philippines. The hospital said it and Grand Isle Shipyard are trying to reach the men's families in the Philippines.

The writer points out the workers were severely burned, but not as extensively....and then goes on to elaborate that two are in critical and two are in serious condition. How is that not extensive !
