PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — After days of resting on the bottom of the Piscataqua River between Maine and New Hampshire, the tugboat Benjamin Bailey has resurfaced.

The Portsmouth Herald says the tugboat, which sank Wednesday, was brought to the surface Saturday with airbags.

The boat was being used in the Memorial Bridge replacement project and sank Wednesday. Two crewmen aboard swam to safety.

The tugboat is owned by Ken Anderson of Riverside & Pickering Marine Contractors, based in Eliot, Maine.
