Two years after the devastating BP oil spill in Mexico in pictures.

Exactly two years, on this very day, one of BP’s largest oil well burst open, killing eleven men on the platform and injuring almost seventeen others. The well had gushed over 4.9 million barrels of crude oil, posing a threat to boats men, precious aquatic and feathery wildlife and endlessly polluting the Gulf of Mexico as well as several neighboring islands and coastal regions. 

Two years later, we re-kindle this awful, not-to-mention one of the world’s largest accidental marine oil spills in the history of petroleum industry and look at the aftermaths of this devastating, controversial event that literally took the world by storm.
