Prestige oil spill

Oil spilled from the single-hulled oil tanker Prestige washes up on the beach as the sun rises November 22, 2002 in Caion, Northern Spain. The tanker broke apart and sank off the coast of Spain, spilling an estimated 17,000 tons of oil into the sea and taking 60,000 tons to the bottom with it.
