MOBILE, Ala., April 4 (UPI) -- High winds blew a guard shack into the Mobile River in Alabama Wednesday. One man was rescued, while another was missing, authorities said.

Winds up to 66 miles per hour sent the BAE Systems guard shack into the water, AL.com reported.

Steve Huffman, spokesman for the Mobile Fire-Rescue Department, said an unidentified 35-year-old man pulled from the water was treated for mild hypothermia and taken to a hospital.

The second unidentified man had not been found.

The guard shack was on a dry dock near where the Carnival Triumph was docked for repairs. The strong winds tore the cruise ship from its mooring lines, sending it into other vessels and docks.
