More workers file suit in Gulf offshore oil rig explosion

Three workers forced to escape on lifeboats after an explosion aboard an offshore drilling platform claim in a lawsuit filed this week that they were kept floating at sea for more than 10 hours while the rig burned uncontrollably.   The Texas lawsuit provides some of the most compelling firsthand accounts so far of the inferno. 

"After these guys were pulled off the rig, they were kept in lifeboats for over 10 hours and saw the whole thing burn. They knew their friends were still on that rig burning," said Kurt Arnold, the Houston-based attorney who filed the lawsuit Tuesday on the men's behalf.
