MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Now that a troubled Carnival cruise ship has been secured after breaking away from the dock at Mobile's port, authorities continue to search for a shipyard worker thrown into the water in a separate wind-related incident.

The crippled cruise ship whose sewage-filled breakdown in the Gulf of Mexico subjected thousands to horrendous conditions tore loose Wednesday from the dock where it was being repaired, lumbered downriver and crunched into a cargo ship.

Wind gusts near hurricane strength shoved the 900-foot Carnival Triumph free from its mooring in downtown Mobile, Ala. Hours later Wednesday, four tug boats used several mooring lines to secure the ship to the cruise terminal.
