Table Rock Lake Tourist boat capsizes leaving at least 17 dead in Missouri

On Thursday a heavy storm moved through Table Rock Lake in south-west Missouri, precipitating the capsizing of the amphibious tourist boat called, Ride the Ducks, to capsize. The event took place sometime around 7 P.M on Thursday. The storm was so bad that the National Weather Service agency in Springfield, Missouri issued a severe thunderstorm warning on Thursday evening for people to take shelter.
As of Friday, 17 victims have died in the tragedy which emergency services have called a “mass casualty incident”. Victims ranged from children reported to be as young as one, to the elderly. 14 people have survived with 7 of those injured and 2 of those in critical condition.
Details about whether the victims had been wearing life jackets are so far unclear. Investigations are currently being conducted by the Coast Guard, the National Transportation Safety Board, the Highway Patrol, and the local sheriff’s department.
The company that builds the boats, Ride the Ducks International LLC, previously agreed to pay a fine of $1 million, after one of its vehicles collided with a bus in Seattle that killed five international students.
Relatives who had passengers on the boat are urged to go to Branson City Hall to wait on reports, or if unable to get to that location to call the emergency line 417-337-8515.
Our hearts go out to anyone affected by this terrible event.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"Overall, I had a great experience working with The Bradley Law Firm!! I would recommend Ryan and his team to anyone. Being involved in a car accident can be quite stressful and dealing with insurance companies can be even more stressful. Having Ryan in my corner lifted a huge burden off my shoulders and made this process much easier for me. They handled everything. Tina is great…she is awesome! She’s extremely patient and kept me informed throughout the entire process. The Bradley Law Firm team is very personable, easy to talk to, and a pleasure to work with."
