Today in Plaquemines Parish, WVUE correspondent John Snell and Parish Coastal Zone Director, PJ Hahn accidentally struck it rich. After the initial disappointment in finding no oil on the water’s surface, PJ and the crew were stepping across the barrier island, when one of the crew stepped in the right place and oil began bubbling up through the sand by way of a hermit crab hole.
Additionally, Hahn told the station that he found thick, heavy crude underground after digging a few feet with a shovel. “I would have never thought that this oil would be this deep underground,” Hahn said.
Bob Dudley has apparently canceled his trip to Russia with Tony Hayward and will soon be arriving to claim the oil for British Petroleum.
