Alwin Landry, standing watch on the support vessel Damon B. Bankston, which was tied up to the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, told a federal inquiry in Lousiana today that he heard a hiss, followed about two minutes later by a green flash and a deafening concussion. His boat picked up the 115 survivors of the explosion.
