So someone I know was at this site when this happened, he was behind the cameraman.

They could not use the Blow out preventer (the valve that closes the opening when all hell breaks loose) , as they where halfway through a rod and you can not close a valve when there is a rod in it. So they had to get the rod out before they could stop the oil water with the B.O.P .

Neat stuff to see, scarey to be onsite.
