Several media outlets are reporting that an oil rig on the Gulf of Mexico caught fire after an explosion on Friday, sending 11 people to hospital and leaving at least two workers missing, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

Four people are in hospital in critical condition, a spokeswoman said, according to a BBC report.

CNN reported that a half-mile oil sheen stretched across an area roughly 30 kilometres off the coast. The platform is used for production, not drilling.
