Thanks for the answers, fellows! I assumed they dumped the fuel but I didn't think of the weight stress scenario. I recall reading that dumped fuel on the ocean evaporates rather quickly and does minimal ecologicl damage. I guess 400,000 lbs. of fuel is a mere drop in the bucket of the ocean. On the other hand it can't do much good but there doesn't seem to be any alternative under the circumstances.
