Adam Weise - from Yorktown, Texas - was a floor hand aboard the Deepwater Horizon at the time the rig exploded. The youngest of four children, Adam began working offshore immediately after graduating from high school. A popular football player, during his high school years, Adam was 24 years old when he died in the Deepwater Horizon disaster. He and five other victims were working below deck, either in the mud pit (where drilling materials were handled) or in the nearby shaker room. They were likely killed in the initial blast.
