Twenty minutes on the Deepwater Horizon

Deepwater Horizon.
Oil riggers on ship that exploded in Gulf of Mexico describe fateful night
... We're waiting to get everyone here before we go!' a supervisor yelled to Eugene and the other men who were waiting near the lifeboats....
They waited 20 minutes on the exploding platform. One hundred and fifteen lived, eleven died. A few jumped and swam to rescue boats, most took the two remaining lifeboats.

Twenty minutes waiting for survivors to run, crawl and be carried to the lifeboats.

Awesome courage.
