MOBILE, Ala. -- Carnival Cruise Lines says a crippled cruise ship that tore loose from the Alabama dock where it's being repaired is secure and has been moved to a terminal.

Spokesman Vance Gulliksen says tug boats moved the drifting ship and tied it up to a pier.

He says about 800 crew and contractors who were on board are safe.

Wind gusts near hurricane strength shoved the 900-foot Carnival Triumph free from its mooring. The ship was brought to Moblile after a five-day ordeal that began when an engine fire stranded it off of Mexico in February.

The violent weather Wednesday also blew a nearby guard shack into the water. A U.S. Coast Guard spokesman says one shipyard worker was rescued and crews were searching for another in the water.
