BREAKING: Carnival Triumph Returns to Cruise Terminal

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

The crippled cruise ship, Carnival Triumph, tore loose from the Alabama cruise terminal around 1:30 Wednesday afternoon.

The ship was being repaired at BAE Shipping Systems after it was towed into Mobile on Valentine's Day. Triumph was brought to Mobile after a five-day disaster that began when an engine fire knocked out power and plumbing on board the ship.

High winds caused the massive ship to break loose and float down to the west end of the Mobile River. Ship Spokesman, Vance Gulliksen says tug boats moved to the drifting ship and secured it to a pier. He also says about 800 crew and contractors were on the ship, and are safe.

However, the United Sates Coast Guard is looking for one man. Officials from the USCG tell News 5 they are looking for a black male in his 40's. He fell from a security shack near the terminal. He was not wear a life jacket.

Another guard shack also fell into the water, but he was recovered by the Coast Guard.

The Triumph did sustain some damage on the right side of the stern. Another ship that was damaged was the dredge, "wheeler." The Wheeler is an Army Corps of Engineer ship. It was being repaired at SSR in Mobile.
