17 dead after duck boat capsizes on Table Rock Lake

This is awful. So sad...


NEAR BRANSON, Mo. -- The Stone County Sheriff confirms eight fatalities involved in a duck boat capsizing on Table Rock Lake Thursday.

Emergency crews responded to the incident shortly after 7 p.m. after a severe line of thunderstorms rolled through the area.

Sheriff Doug Rader reports the boat had 31 people on board. He tells KY3 News four of those have been transported to a hospital. Some of the 31 on board include children. Divers are on the scene searching for more possible victims. The sheriff says he does not know how many on the boat are missing. The sheriff is asking for any family missing someone to go to Branson City Hall. It remains a rescue and recovery mission.

There are very little regulations and they vary State to State I read on these things. Sort of like hot air balloon excursions any idiot can get a permit a balloon and start charging to float you into high voltage transmission lines. Still people will pay for the thrill.
So thee are known fixes the boat operator could have made to make the boats safer.

This just keeps getting better.

"Personal Injury" and "Wrongful Death" will certainly be filed in civil cases.


I think they could throw an involuntary manslaughter charge in, at the least, if they could show that the company's employees received the weather info and ignored it for profit.



I doubt any criminal charges will be filed in this case.

The stage collapse in IN never brought criminal charges even though the structure was built below building codes, killing seven people and injuring 58 others. It was settled as a class action at the tune of $50MM.

I will say, having been on one of the boats, they do offer you life vests but nobody puts them on... and table rock lake doesn't get that rough that often in my experience... that said, no way should they have let them on the water. poster before was correct, it's like an hour total for a duck ride
The time on the water is much less but i don't know how long.

This should lead to action to get some control over the boats on all MO lakes. LOTO is nuts . TR is not far behind.

Wow horrible news. That is a ton dead, JFC. Thoughts and prayers, even though I don't believe in that stuff. Just awful.

That was some rough waters but those 'boats' didn't look too sea worthy. A real boat would not have had a problem with those waves.

Iíve went on them in Branson before, many years ago. Iím a worry wart in general, but I definitely felt anxious the whole time while riding. You feel like you just rode a school bus into water. I always thought it was very strange that they didnít enforce life jackets as mandatory, if nothing else for liability purposes.

Just a thought about why the Duck was on the water. I live in Highlandville, just north of Branson. I started getting strong winds here about 6:40-6:45. I turned on the TV and saw the warnings. The one for this area was set to expire at 6:45 and it did. But, a few minutes later, a beautiful warning was issued. Maybe the Ducks went out during that time thinking that it was all clear.

I've rode them before, and I have no problem with riding one in the future. This was Branson's first Duck accident in 40 years. I take a bigger chance driving to Branson than I do getting on a Duck.

The Lake Hamilton incident killed 13 of 21 vs. 17 of 31 in Branson.

What are the odds that not a one of those nine didnít stand their ground and say we better hold off and ride this duck another time when it might be safer. I think it was Ď77 when the ducks came to Branson. The same year Elvis died when the ducks came to Branson. I was 13 took one look at those and said oh no. Half boat half Auto. Makes it not worth a crap. Spent years in the Army building bridges with them. We would put bays on them and carry tanks on them. Lost numerous troops, got hit by barges on the Rhein river in Germany.
