Tugboat Tow Line Breaks, Wayward Cruise Ship Still Stranded

More than 4,200 people are still on the Carnival Cruise Ship, Triumph, as the tow line snapped earlier today on a tugboat dragging the mammoth ship to port.

The New York Times is reporting that earlier this afternoon the tug boat broke a line attached to the 102,000 ton ship, leaving it drifting aimlessly. But, the tow line was quickly fixed and the ship is now moving back to shore.

Earlier this week, a decision was made to tow the ship into Moblie, Alabama, rather than its original destination in Mexico.
