MOBILE, Ala. -

The troubled Carnival cruise ship Triumph is weathering yet another storm. The ship has broken free from the shipyard in Mobile, Ala. A worker was missing after the cruise ship broke free from its moorings but has now been found.

Photos show damage to the ship. Carnival workers said high winds caused the ship to break its moorings and it drifted into an army corps of engineers boat and then into the dock.

A representative for Carnival says two workers were thrown into the water. They are both back safe on solid ground. The ship was at the shipyard getting repairs after a fire in the engine room stranded 4,200 passengers for five miserable days back in February .

Tug boats and the coast guard are working on bringing the boat back to shore. The ship was taken out of service and but was expected to sail again on June 3.
