NEW YORK -- The gangway to a decommissioned submarine on exhibit at New York's Intrepid Museum was damaged from the wake of a cruise ship.

The museum and Coast Guard officials said the incident occurred early Sunday as the Norwegian Star was maneuvering to its docking position on the Hudson River, north of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.

The wake caused the gangway to work loose. The submarine, the Growler, was open to visitors on Sunday.
