‘No more missing’ after tourist boat capsizes killing 17 in Missouri

Divers pulled the last bodies from the wreckage of a “duck boat” that sank a day earlier during a storm in a lake near a popular Missouri destination, killing 17 people in one of the deadliest U.S. tourist incidents in years.

The World War Two-style amphibious vehicle was filled with 31 passengers including children when a microburst storm hit Table Rock Lake outside Branson, Missouri. A video of the incident showed it battered by waves.Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader said ‘no more’ persons were missing, but he did not offer any detail regarding the condition of victims taken to the hospital.

Duck boats have been involved in a string of deadly incidents that have killed more than three dozen people across the United States over the past two decades, by drowning and in crashes on land.
