WWL: Tugboat captain killed by falling crane arm

  // Thursday, 14 August 2014 07:31 //

A tugboat captain is dead after a crane arm struck the Florida Avenue Bridge and fell back into the pilot house, WWL TV is reporting.

WWL cites the U.S. Coast in saying the Florida Avenue Bridge was raised to the level requested by the tug boat Cory Michael, but apparently not enough to avert the fatal accident in the Inner Harbor Navigational Canal.

River traffic was halted temporarily, but has since resumed the station reported.
