Tragedy Strikes As Tugboat Capsizes On Alabama River

In a tragic turn of events, a body was found on the Alabama River after a 27-foot tugboat capsized. The officials were informed about the same on October 14th at 4:39 p.m. by Encore Dredging.

The New Orleans Coast Guard initiated a rapid rescue operation and dispatched a helicopter to the area where the incident occurred. Shockingly, there were no Coast Guard boats, and several troops joined hands to look for survivors. Reports claim there were two people on the boat; one of them was the deckhand, who was rescued, and the captain was trapped in the pilothouse, due to which he couldn’t make it. The Alabama State Troopers found the captain’s body.

The tugboat was eventually retrieved and sent to Encore Dredging Co. in Mount Vernon.

The Coast Guard has not yet found out about the tug’s activities prior to capsizing.

Various organizations, including the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and a team of volunteers from Daphne Search and Rescue, are now in charge of gathering more information about the rescue and recovery.
