February 27, 2012
Capt. Ethan Maass of Sea Tow South Shore came across this video of the tug Eugenia Moran rescuing the stricken tug Miss Stacy, which became trapped below the Memorial Bridge on the Piscataqua River and nearly capsized on Tuesday, February 21.
There were reportedly 2 people aboard the Miss Stacy when it began listing to its port side at about 2:00 p.m.
Assistant Portsmouth Fire Chief Steve Achilles said the tugboat was moving a barge beneath the bridge when it got turned around by the current and became lodged underneath the span.
