    Vermilion 380

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Metaoe67 is a paramedic on board an oil rig 14 miles from the platform that exploded. 'We were up here in the radio room and all of sudden we saw a whole bunch of smoke coming from the platform. Shortly after all radios started lighting up like a Christmas tree. They called any helicopters in the area, any boats in the area to respond. They were saying there were people in the water.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Smoke has subsided and helicopters are reporting all 13 men have been rescued from the water. as of 10:50 Local time.

    FYI Vermilion 380 in a production platform and not a drilling rig.
