Mobile, Ala. (WKRG) -- The Carnival Triumph broke loose from its port in Mobile, Alabama, and drifted across the river before crashing into another vessel on Wednesday afternoon.
The ship is now docked for the second time at the Mobile Cruise Terminal. Tug boats pushed the giant ship northward, up the river at about 5 p.m. Wednesday evening.
Our sister station WKRG in Mobile reports the ship has sustained some damage. A large hole is visible on the right side of the stern.
The U.S. Coast Guard says high winds that followed some storms caused ropes that were anchoring the ship to break.
Mobile Fire-Rescue says that unrelated to the Triumph breaking loose, high winds also knocked a guard shack on another dry dock into the water. One man who was inside the shack was rescued and taken to the hospital with unknown injuries, while a second man is still missing.
Triumph has been in Mobile for almost two months, after it was towed to Mobile on Valentine's Day after an engine-room fire knocked out power.

The ship was returning to Galveston, Texas at the end of a four-day cruise to Cozumel when the fire happened.
It has been undergoing repairs at BAE Ship Systems since then.
