Remember just a few weeks ago when the Carnival Triumph Cruise Ship conked out in the Gulf of Mexico with thousands on board?
More bad luck struck Wednesday when high winds caused it to break away from the dock in Mobile, Alabama, where it was taken for repairs from an engine fire that happened on Feb. 10. That was the incident where passengers endured terrible conditions of food shortages, walking in raw sewage and sleeping in tents on deck.
According to FOX News, Carnival spokesman Vance Gulliksen said the ship drifted for a couple of hours before being and was secured around 5 p.m. yesterday.
Crews were searching yesterday for a shipyard worker who fell into the water after a guard shack was blown over by the high winds, a second worker at the shipyard who also fell in was rescued.
