Tappan Zee Bridge project tugboat sinks

Strong winds and rough waters likely caused a tugboat working on the Tappan Zee Bridge project to sink on Sunday.

The tug, named "Prospector," was tied off at Petersen Boat Yard and Marina in Upper Nyack along the Hudson River when it took on water. No one was on board.

In the past, barges from the project site have broken loose during high winds and stormy weather.
