CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- The U.S. Coast Guard has ended the search for two crew members of a dredging boat who went missing following an explosion last week in the Port of Corpus Christi in Texas.
The end of the search was announced late Saturday night, a few hours after the Coast Guard had said the bodies of two other crew members of the dredging vessel Waymon L Boyd had been found.
The Coast Guard has said the explosion happened at about 8 a.m. Friday when the vessel struck a submerged pipeline.
Port of Corpus Christi officials said it was a natural gas pipeline.
The cause is being investigated.
