On Monday, a Transocean Winner oil rig was blown onto a remote Scottish shore during a severe storm.
According to the BBC, the rig carrying 280 metric tons of diesel broke free from a tugboat transporting it to Malta from Norway.
According to the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency, there was no one aboard the 19,000-ton drilling rig. However, the larger concern now is the risk of pollution.
To date, there haven't been any leaks, but the coastguard has closed off the beach from sightseers and visitors.
The BBC also reported that the Marine Accident Investigation Branch has begun an inquiry into the accident, in particular questioning how the rig broke free and why it was being transported in severe weather.
How do you think the massive rig was able to break away?
