Carnival Triumph breaks loose in storm

A man is missing after the accident

The Carnival Triumph set adrift for several hours after it was showed free by near hurricane winds from its moorings in Alabama on Wednesday.

Two security men were blown into the Mobile River and one is still missing. The Coast Guard officials said they were searching for the missing man.

The Carnival Triumph was later secured at a dock at the Alabama Cruise Terminal with tugboats next to it as a precaution.
