The Carnival Triumph broke loose from the Mobile, Alabama port Wednesday and drifted across the Mobile river.

Tow boats were on the scene working to move the ship back to BAE Ship Systems where it was undergoing repairs from the engine-room fire that knocked out its power back in February.  It has been undergoing repairs since it was towed into the port on Valentine's Day. 

The ship sustained some damage from it's break from the port. There is a hole on the right side of the stern.

Initial reports from Mobile Fire Rescue has stated there might have people in the water and searches were underway.
