Exxon Valdez Ship

June 2, 1990 | From Times Staff and Wire Reports
More than 14 months after the devastating Exxon Valdez oil spill, seven bald eagle victims of the spill are returning to the wild, including "Miracle," who was delivered in a coma one year ago and nursed back to health. Wildlife workers took the birds from their enclosures at the Ft. Richardson Army post north of Anchorage, stuffed them into large portable dog kennels and flew them to Cordova for today's freedom flight from an unoiled Prince William Sound beach.

Exxon Corp. Thursday added $300 million to its 1989 costs of cleaning up the Valdez oil spill, already the costliest industrial accident in history, further reducing its annual earnings to $3.51 billion and bringing Exxon's total charges to $1.68 billion for the year. For the first time, the new costs reflected potential liability from litigation, as well as expenses from future cleanups.
