According to a statement from Mexico’s state oil company, Pemex, 7 of the missing oil workers were found alive on Sunday Sept 11, but one of the survivors, Kham Nadimuzzaman of Bangladesh, later died Sunday evening in the hospital after being rescued from three days at sea adrift in the Gulf of Mexico.
The 10 workers were forced to abandon the disabled Trinity II liftboat three days ago and board an enclosed life raft in the midst of a tropical storm. Pemex identified the 6 survivors as two U.S. citizens, Jeremy Parfait and Ted Derise, Jr., both from Louisiana and Ruben Velasquez, Eleaquin Lopez, Luis Escobar and Ruben Lopez Villalobos, all from Mexico.
