Search for shipyard worker blown into river called off

| No Comments

The search for a missing shipyard worker was called off Thursday according to the Washington Post.

A shipyard worker was blown by strong winds into the Mobile River, in Mobile Alabama Wednesday. The Coast Guard searched for about 15 hours, according to a report from CNN.

"It is always extremely difficult to suspend a search when a person is still missing," said Capt. Ed Cubanski, chief of response, 8th Coast Guard District, according to a report by the Washington Post.

A 900-foot Carnival Triumph cruise ship was ripped away from its moorings in the same winds, according to the Washington Post.
