Boat stuck under bridge on Hudson after river ice jam frees vessels

Cruise boat Captain JP gets stuck under a bridge in upstate New York on Friday.

Bridges closed over the Hudson after at least four boats broke loose and were swept along the Hudson River, local media reported.

Footage from Troy, some seven miles north of Albany, shows the cruise boat Captain JP wedged under a bridge after an ice jam carried it off. The Rusty Anchor Restaurant Barge was also one of those that broke loose.

Bridges in the area shut down as a result. The vessels initially broke loose at around 2:00am, reported local media. The US Coast Guard has since dispatched two ice cutters.
