Efforts To Shut Down Duck Boats After Branson Tragedy Keep Mounting

Outrage from the Duck Boat mishap on Table Rock Lake near Branson continues to mount.

Attorney Andrew Duffy is with a Philadelphia law firm that has represented victims in previous duck boat incidents.

He says the Duck Boat operators are responsible for the latest tragedy because they refused to address safety concerns after an Arkansas mishap left 13 dead. 

Duffy tells the Missourinet that the major issue with the Branson incident will be whether the “bilge” pumps that are supposed to pump out water as it comes in were working. 

The largest death toll from a Duck Boat incident occurred last Thursday when 17 passengers died when a vessel sank on Table Rock Lake.
