Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen says two contract workers helping with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill cleanup have died. Neither death appears to have a direct connection to the spill.
Allen said Wednesday in Washington that one man was killed by what investigators later called a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Allen said the other worker's death involved swimming. He would not provide more details.
