    yeah indeed, can you imagine. after a few weeks work on that rig, being relieved to go home again to your family and then that crash. i think on that moment you just would have wished to never left the rig at all

    Wow. Bad news, indeed. And to have to ditch in the North Sea? NOT a very friendly place to go down, from what I understand.

    Damn, very sad news!

    The North Sea area can be very dangerous. I hate the fact that my wife is out on a boat out there every day for the last month.

    The North Sea can be very dangerous but they are all trained and kitted out for situations like this (they have to be by law in the UK). Still very sad to hear it happen.
