An undersea gas pipeline ruptured in the Gulf of Mexico and the scary moments were all caught on video.

According to ABC 7, the pipeline is property of Mexico’s state-owned oil company called Pemex and thankfully, there was no injuries or death reported. However, the rupture actually took place about 150 yards from the drilling platform and with the help of fire control boats, the blaze were controlled under five hours.

Miyoko Sakashita, oceans program director for the Center for Biological Diversity, wrote that "the frightening footage of the Gulf of Mexico is showing the world that offshore drilling is dirty and dangerous."

Sakashita added, "These horrific accidents will continue to harm the Gulf if we don't end offshore drilling once and for all."

Take a look at the horrifying moments below.
