Rig blast survivors to testify in probe
Workers who survived a deadly explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig will testify before a panel of officials investigating the cause of the well blowout.
Hearings for a joint investigation by the Coast Guard and Minerals Management Service are scheduled to resume today and run through Saturday.
The six-member panel already heard two days of testimony earlier this month.
Coast Guard and MMS investigators are expected to issue a joint report on the cause of the incident within nine months.
