BP Installs Containment Cap After Mishap

"The logistics coordinator onboard the ship that's been siphoning oil from a gushing well in the Gulf of Mexico tells The Associated Press that a cap on top has been reattached and is again capturing some of the crude. The crewmember on the bridge of the Discoverer Enterpriser says the cap was placed back on the gusher around 9 p.m. EDT. It had been off for more than 11 hours."

CBS and AP had the story June 23, 2010.
