Survivor testifies about oil rig blast

NEW ORLEANS — A Transocean employee who survived the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion testified Tuesday that a subordinate killed in the blast was one of the workers who apparently missed signs that BP’s well was about to blow out.

Randy Ezell, the first rig worker to testify in person at a trial designed to assign blame for the 2010 disaster, said Jason Anderson was a ‘‘top-notch’’ toolpusher who would have done everything in his power to prevent the blowout.
