Tugboat Sinks, Three Believed Dead


The U.S. Coast Guard has found the second of three crew members missing from a tugboat that sank about 40 miles off Cape Fear along our coast in gale-force wind and high seas. At least one of the two men found is confirmed dead. The search continues for the last crewmember of the 135-foot tugboat that began sinking late Tuesday while pulling a barge. Five other sailors were rescued.
