PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Rescuers came to the aid of a tugboat that wedged up against a structural support for the Memorial Bridge near Portsmouth, N.H.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Ryan Smith says the tugboat got wedged up in the pilings at about 2 p.m. Tuesday. Smith said the boat was being tugged away, and the two people aboard were not hurt.

The supports are part of what remains of the Memorial Bridge, which connected Portsmouth to Kittery, Maine.

The center span was recently removed and more demolition work is planned to replace the 90-year-old bridge. A new bridge is planned for 2013.
