The last of the New Carissa, a freighter that ran aground in 1999, is shown Tuesday in Coos Bay, Ore. Titan Salvage crew hopes to cut up the 200-ton chunk of the wreckage, believed to be the aft part of the engine, and load the pieces onto a barge by today, when the forecast is for rough weather. Officials of the Florida-based company said three small metal pieces remain underwater, and divers will try to reach those when the weather improves.
