1 killed; 2 others presumed dead in NY tugboat crash.

NEW YORK, Jumada II 04, 1437, March 13, 2016, SPA -- A search for two missing crew members of a tugboat that crashed into a barge and sank in the Hudson River has stretched into another day. Emergency responders are expected to resume their efforts Sunday morning, AP reported. The two men, who haven't been identified, were presumed dead after the 90-foot tugboat named Specialist hit a barge around 5:20 a.m. Saturday and sank, killing a fellow crew member and spilling about 5,000 gallons of fuel into the water north of New York City. Authorities say the tugboat hit a stationary barge that was part of the new Tappan Zee Bridge construction project. --SPA 12:22 LOCAL TIME 09:22 GMT
