Relieved of his duties as captain of the biggest environmental catastrophe in history, after last week’s stonewalling in D.C., BP’s CEO Tony Hayward, former head of exploration and production for the oil giant, got a piece of his “life back” this weekend by participating in a yachting competition!

In this intense piece, 60 Minutes speaks to a survivor of the Deepwater Horizon blowout, who revealed problems long before the spill.
