Just wild weather offshore at Azerbaijan with an accommodation rig collapsing and another on fire. It is considered the worst accident since Piper Alpha.
The rig staff embarked in 2 boats but were not able to lower them due to conditions. One broke free during the night and went under the rig. It was damaged and the persons inside thrown into the water.
