Tony Hayward can’t remember the names of the men who died on Deepwater Horizon
When the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded on April 20, 2010, 11 men died. Now, the man that was in charge of that disaster can’t seem to recall their names.
In a deposition recorded June 8, 2011, former BP CEO Tony Hayward named one man correctly (Karl Kleppinger) and got two others wrong. He admitted that he couldn’t remember the rest at all.
“Do you remember any of the names of the individuals who lost their lives?” plaintiff attorney Robert Cunninham asked Hayward.
“I remember some of them: James Anderson, Gordon Clark, Karl Kleppinger, I think,” the former CEO replied. “I can’t remember all of them.”
Judge Sally Shushan ordered Rupert Murdoch’s The Daily to take down the leaked video but the publication has refused.
