Carnival Triumph Breaks Loose from Dock

Carnival Triumph Breaks Loose from Dock
Posted April 3rd, 2013 @ 3:28pm

Tow boats are pushing the Carnival Triumph back to its dock at BAE Ship Systems in Mobile, Alabama after it broke free from its moorings during severe weather.  The 100-thousand-ton ship apparently drifted across the river before it was secured.  Teams are inspecting new damage on the right rear of the ship that's been at the Port of Mobile for repairs. 

It was towed there in February following an engine fire in the Gulf of Mexico.  Mobile Fire-Rescue transported one person to a local hospital and the Fireboat Phoenix is searching for others who may have been thrown into the water.
