Florida spring breakers find the oil (VIDEO)


Underwater Tarmats, WEAR, March 16, 2011 at 10:04 pm EDT:

[Emphasis Added]

... There are still 11 tarmats just a few yards off shore. ...

The spring breakers we talked to today, didn't need a map.

They've had no problem finding the oil. ...

So far, [BP has] cleaned up one mat in Perdido Key and say they're not sure when or if they'll clean up anymore. ...

Spring Breaker #1

Mary Lillis/Spring Breaker: "We were fishing with nets for shells, we call it shelling and it was just brown, I thought it was shark poop at first."

But the mystery brown stuff didn't wash off easily…

Spring Breaker #2

Ryan Funk/Spring Breaker: "Basically when I first saw it in the sand I thought it was a rock."

But after Ryan Funk of Pace got a closer look, he realized it was oil.

Ryan Funk/Spring Breaker: "It kind of did surprise me with all the
efforts I thought BP was making to clean up but obviously as you can
see, there's still so much to do." ...

Ryan Funk/Spring Breaker: "Personally I think they should go out there right now and clean it up because if they wait for it to break up, it's just going to make more of a mess. It will get on more shells and more sand."
