Missouri Duck Boat Sinks, Killing at Least 13

A duck boat packed with tourists capsized in high winds on a southwest Missouri lake, killing at least 13 people.
Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Jason Pace said 14 people survived, including seven who were injured when the Ride the Ducks boat sank on Table Rock Lake in Branson on Thursday evening, AP reported.
Patrol divers found two more bodies early Friday, raising the death toll from 11 to 13, Pace said.
Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader said Thursday that stormy weather likely made the boat capsize. Another duck boat on the lake made it safely back to shore.
Passengers on a nearby boat told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that the water became rough as the wind picked up. “Debris was flying everywhere,” Allison Lester said in an interview Friday.
