Nine family members among 17 dead in US ‘duck boat’ tragedy
Nine members of one family were among 17 people killed when a US tourist boat capsized during a sudden storm on a Missouri lake.
The governor’s office said twenty-nine passengers and two crew members were on board, when the boat plunged into Table Rock Lake due to thunderstorms.
The incident occurred during heavy winds as a storm moved over the man-made lake in southern Missouri. The duck boat was one of two in the water at the time but the other safely reached shore.
People on a nearby larger vessel, the Branson Belle, jumped into the water to rescue victims, Sheriff Doug Rader said. AFP
