MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) – The Carnival Triumph, which was docked at a repair yard in Mobile, has broken loose from port.

Tow boats are working to bring the ship back to BAE Ship Systems, where the Triumph was docked for repairs.


WKRG, the CBS affiliate in Mobile, is broadcasting live coverage on WKRG.com.


Officials say two workers were also thrown into the water when a nearby guard shack was blown over.  One person is safe, WKRG reports, and the search is underway for the second person.
