Key MO Legislator Helps To Retrieve Duck Boat

State Rep. Scott Fitzpatrick from Shell Knob helped to lift a sunken duck boat to the surface in Branson this week.

Seventeen people died when the vessel filled with water and went under during a thunderstorm last week.

Fitzpatrick tells the Missourinet that his company, along with his dad’s business, combined efforts with State Patrol divers and the U.S. Coast Guard to accomplish the task.

Fitzpatrick says State Patrol divers, the U.S. Coast Guard and many others also helped to recover the boat.
