MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Authorities are searching for a shipyard worker who was thrown into the water in strong winds that also tore a troubled Carnival cruise ship away from its mooring at an Alabama port.
The man was one of two people in a guard shack that blew into the water Wednesday at the shipyard in downtown Mobile, Ala. That's where the 900-foot Carnival Triumph had been moored for repairs after being stranded off the coast of Mexico for five days in February.
A U.S. Coast Guard spokesman says a second worker was rescued.
The Triumph was at the dock for repairs after a February engine fire that left the ship adrift without power for five days. Thousands of passengers and crew were subjected to horrendous conditions including food shortages and raw sewage running in corridors.
