Over 100 men stranded on drill ship in Gulf during Ida, no rescue in sight: ‘Crying in the hallway’
More than 100 men say they are stranded on a drill ship in the Gulf of Mexico after Hurricane Ida battered the area, and they don’t know when they’ll be rescued.
“I mean I was watching grown men with life jackets hold on for dear life crying in the hallway. It was bad,” one anonymous crew member told KLFY News Ten.
Crew on the Noble’s Globetrotter II drill ship, which is located about 100 miles from Louisiana’s shore, said they rode out the storm as 80 foot waves and 150 mile an hour winds battered the ship. The crew said Noble Corporation and Shell were supposed to rescue them, but help never arrived.
