Damaged Carnival ship Triumph breaks away from Alabama dock

 Thursday, April 4, 2013


Strong winds caused the Carnival cruise ship Triumph to break loose on Wednesday from its moorings at a Mobile, Alabama, shipyard where it was being repaired, a company spokesman said, and it drifted into a cargo vessel. Tug boats and the U.S. Coast Guard were on site, and all crew members and contractors aboard the Triumph were accounted for, spokesman Vance Gulliksen said. An engine fire left the Triumph adrift in the Gulf of Mexico for five days in February with more than 4,000 passengers aboard. The ship was towed to Mobile.
