HORROR IN THE OZARKS.
A ‘Ride the Duck’ boat capsized on Table Rock Lake in the Missouri Ozarks Thursday evening after 60 mph winds created large waves, resulting in 17 confirmed deaths so far.
Among the deaths was a 1 year old baby. None of the victims have been identified.
The Daily Mail reported:
All of the victims were on board the Ride the Ducks amphibious vessel when a powerful storm rolled over the lake, lashing the water with 60mph winds at around 7pm.
Fourteen people survived, including the boat’s captain. Seven people were hospitalized with injuries.
Those who died range in age from one to 70. Among them was the boat’s driver.
Search and rescue teams sectioned off part of the lake to continue their recovery of the four missing bodies on Friday morning.
The first 11 bodies were found on Thursday night and six more were recovered the next day.
The lake which is 229ft seep and has a surface area of 43,100 acres was partially reopened to the public on Friday morning.
People in a nearby boat caught footage of the Duck Boat struggling to push through the waves to safety.
Prayers for the families and loved ones affected by this tragedy.
President Trump tweeted Friday morning, “My deepest sympathies to the families and friends of those involved in the terrible boat accident which just took place in Missouri. Such a tragedy, such a great loss. May God be with you all!”
