Underwater video shows oil gushing like a geyser

Video released by BP shows oil spewing from a broken pipe 5,000 feet below the surface of the water. The oil looks like steam rushing from a geyser.

The video released Wednesday gives a glimpse of the leaking well. The stream occasionally can be seen becoming lighter as natural gas mixes into the gusher.

Natural gas has been flowing from the well since the beginning. BP's Doug Suttles says the rate natural gas has been flowing out hasn't changed in the 21 days since the Deepwater Horizon exploded in the Gulf of Mexico.
