Emergency responders on Wednesday were still trying to douse the flames from a natural gas well that exploded off the coast of Louisiana, evacuating 44 workers, the Coast Guard said.
The company that owns an oil platform that caught fire in the Gulf of Mexico has vowed to continue searching for a second missing worker after a body was recovered in the waters near the site.
The remains of the unidentified person were found Saturday night by divers hired by Houston-based Black Elk Energy, Coast Guard spokesman Carlos Vega said.
"We saw no signs of life. We have suspended the search... pending further development," Vega said.
