Carnival Cruise ship breaks loose in Mobile

(UPDATE 5:50 p.m.) MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- U.S. Coast Guard officials say tug boats are working to stabilize the disabled cruise ship that became dislodged from its mooring during high winds in Mobile, Ala.

Carnival Cruise Lines spokesman Vance Gulliksen says the Triumph had been secured as of 5 p.m. Wednesday and is expected to be moved to the Mobile Cruise Terminal.

Triumph was disabled Feb. 10 by an engine fire that stranded thousands of passengers onboard for days in the Gulf. It was towed into port in Mobile.

Coast Guard officials say they saw no sign of the missing BAE Systems employee who was knocked into the water with a co-worker when near hurricane-strength winds blew their guard shack over. The other man was rescued.

Authorities say the Triumph becoming dislodged and the shack blowing into the water are not directly related.
