SAN DIEGO, CA - Six tug boats are pulling a cruise ship to shore - days after it lost electrical power.
Carnival's "Splendor" is docking at the harbor in downtown San Diego this morning.
Two tug boats hauled the ship from the Mexican coast and four more were hooked up to help steer it.
It will take several hours for the nearly 4,500 passengers and crew members to get off the ship.
A fire in the engine room knocked out power Monday leaving passengers without lights and hot water.
Navy helicopters had to drop canned meats and other non-perishable foods for them to eat.
The "Splendor" left Long Beach, CA Sunday for a seven day trip to the Mexican Riviera.
