Duck Boat Victims Identified

After they stopped for a picture, she said, a ticket taker realised they should have boarded at a different location and reassigned them.

The waves on the lake overwhelmed the amphibious vehicle that drives and land and water, and it sank in 80 feet of water coming to rest on its wheels.

A severe thunderstorm warning had been issued for Branson at 6:32 p.m. Thursday, about 40 minutes before the boat tipped over.

"This is not 1901", he wrote.

"Oh my God, those poor people, oh no!" someone says in the background as the water crashes into the smaller boats.

The cause of the sinking is under investigation, but officials believe weather played a role.

The deaths and identities of the family members - including four children under the age of 10 - were confirmed by IndyStar via family members Friday evening.

Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader said the divers ended their "challenging" search on Thursday night before resuming their efforts yesterday morning.

Suzanne Smagala is with Ripley Entertainment, which runs the duck boat operation in Branson. But he acknowledged that the boat should not have been out.

Speaking to CBS, he said: "I don't have all the details, but to answer your question, no, it shouldn't have been in the water if, if what happened, happened". "It is absolutely devastating".

Emergency crews responded to the incident shortly after 7 p.m. after thunderstorms rolled through an area that is a Midwestern tourist destination, the fire district said on Twitter.

Seventeen people died when the pleasure cruise went down, with divers finding the final four bodies on Friday in Table Rock Lake, near Branson. The accident happened amid churning waters and stormy weather.

Passengers on a nearby boat described the scene as chaotic and said the winds picked up suddenly, sending debris flying everywhere.

Gingrich: Trump's Putin Comments 'Most Serious Mistake of Presidency'
Trump praised Putin on hosting the soccer World Cup, which ended on Sunday, saying: "It was beautifully done, so congratulations". Warner characterized Trump's refusal to criticize Putin as throwing the entire USA intelligence community "under the bus".

Cellphone video taken by a witness showed the boat struggling to move on the water before it was hit by waves and then sank.

First responders from multiple agencies responded to the incident, initially reported as a "mass casualty incident" involving a "tourist type boat" on Table Rock Lake. "Somebody needs to help them". "To one side, you still had sunny skies and very little to no wind". The duck boat was one of two in the water at the time but the other safely reached shore.

As the demand for duck tours increased, the design of the boat has in fact been updated to better accommodate the popular summertime activity. "They're not fit for water or land because they are a half vehicle and half boat".

"Canopies present major safety risks that need to be addressed ... both adults and children wearing lifejackets are at risk of being drowned if entrapped by the overhead canopy", the NTSB said of the sinking in Arkansas, which killed 13 on Lake Hamilton. The boat's driver was among those killed. Dozens of people were also injured. Ride the Ducks International LLC agreed the following year to pay $1 million for violating federal safety regulations, according to the Seattle Times. A speed boat can be seen driving up behind the duck boats.

The company added: "This incident has deeply affected all of us".
