Sunken tugboat, missing crew members recovered in Mississippi River

ALGIERS, LA (WVUE) - A tugboat that sank in the Mississippi River in March has been recovered along with the bodies of two missing crew members. 

The Natalie Jean capsized near Algiers.

At the time, crews searched the water but were unable to send dive crews into the water because of dangerous river conditions.

One person was rescued from the boat.

The two men who died were Malon Dawsey Junior and Karl Prince.
