Best Answer

11 people died in the explosion and resulting fires of the Macondo Blowout on the BP Deepwater Horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico on 2010 April 20.

17 other men were injured in the explosion. Two more men were killed in related incidents, one of them possibly a suicide by a fisherman turned clean-up worker.

There are expected to be more financially-related suicides, but they are unlikely to be reported.
