The search for a helicopter lost in the Gulf of Mexico has ended
on a sad note. Rescuers found four bodies in the Gulf of Mexico on
Wednesday believed to have been among 10 people on a helicopter
that disappeared overnight en route to an oil exploration ship off
the Texas coast. An offshore supply vessel assisting in the search
discovered two bodies about 60 miles south of Galveston. A separate
debris field and two additional bodies were then located nearby.
The search continued for the other six people on the flight that
left Galveston Tuesday. The helicopter carried a pilot, a co-pilot
and eight workers.
