I think there is a video of this. The tug boat lets go of its cargo upstream of the bridge, and, because the river is a bit high and fast, it gets sucked under and pops up on the other side, with the engine clearly running as it rights itself and proceeds to catch up with the cargo.

Must have made a mess of lunch in the galley.
