Video: shocking footage shows Duck Boat’s tragic last moments

Published

on

A woman filmed the tragic last moments of a tourist attraction called the “duck boat” as it turned over in the water and at least 11 people lost their lives. The boat was out on a Missouri lake and there appears to be a torrential thunderstorm going on. The boat should not have been on the water and it was reported that the company has fairly strong rules when it comes to inclement weather, but something tragically went wrong and bad decisions were made.

As the boat struggles to go further, it eventually flips over. The footage was caught on camera by a woman who posted the video on her Facebook page. She was reportedly in another boat, much larger, and it appears that she and many others watched as the duck boat sank with passengers on it. The video is a bit shocking and might be very sensitive for some people to view, so proceed with caution.

“The last moments before a tourist duck boat tragically flipped over on a Missouri lake Thursday, killing 11, were captured on a video shot from a larger nearby cruise vessel, where onlookers witnessed the deadly disaster as they were sitting down to dinner.

Jennie Phillips-Hudson Carr posted the shocking footage on her Facebook page, showing the two smaller amphibious duck boats bobbing violently in the currents of Table Rock Lake near the tourist town of Branson.

Throughout the five-minute video, voices from inside the dinner cruise could be screaming their concern as waves crashed into the neighboring vessels.

“Wow,” “Oh my God,” “Oh no” and “Oh those poor people” could be repeatedly heard in Carr’s video, with dinner plates and utensils clanking in the background.

“They should have never come out here with those things,” one male voice said.

“If there’s kids on there, those poor babies,” a female voice could be heard.

Both were in trouble, and one was seen being swamped by water. But the video cut out before it was clear which one was the duck boat that eventually flipped.

“They’re all hanging on for dear life in there, you know it,” a male voice said.

Officials said that 31 people were on the Ride the Duck boat that went down, 11 died, several were injured and several more were missing early Friday.

Carr wrote on Facebook that her boat was never in danger: “We are! The showboat didn’t go anywhere. The crew of the boat helped them as much as possible! Then after it was calm down they made us all leave!”

Carr later removed the video from her Facebook page.”

Honduran Migrant Caravan EXPLODES As it Approaches Border

Amazing how this happens mere weeks before the midterm elections.

Time to put military on full alert and stationed at the border. This is an invasion and needs to be stopped in its tracks AT the border.

Stop the invasion!

From The Gateway Pundit:

On Wednesday, the caravan of mostly Honduran migrants exploded to a whopping 4,000 people as it approached the Mexico-Guatemala border, despite President Trump’s warnings to cut off U.S. aid.

The Mexican government flooded the Mexico-Guatemala border with hundreds of police officers in anticipation of a stand off with the migrants.

President Trump meant business when he issued a strong warning to Honduran President Hernandez Tuesday over the migrant caravan marching northbound to United States.

The organizer of the caravan, Bartolo Fuentes was detained in Guatemala Tuesday and it was reported Honduran migrants had splintered off into smaller groups in order to travel undetected as they made their trek to the Mexican border. Reuters reported late Tuesday that some Honduran migrants had headed back to Honduras, however; it appears the caravan has grown as it make its way through Guatemala.

The Associate Press reported Wednesday that the Hondurans were spotted in Chiquimula, Guatemala marching through rain, determined to make it the Mexican border.

Because the migrant caravan has grown to over 4,000 people, the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 police to its border with Guatemala, reported NBC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be traveling to Mexico on Friday to discuss plans to stop the caravan.

A caravan of migrants fleeing Honduras has grown to 4,000 and the Mexican government has sent an additional 500 federal police to its border with Guatemala in anticipation of their arrival, according to U.S. government documents obtained by NBC News.

Part of the caravan, which has split into two groups, is now approaching the Mexico-Guatemala border amidst a surge in border crossings on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will travel to Mexico to meet with his counterparts on Friday, where plans to stop the caravan will be a “prominent” topic of discussion, according to a senior State Department official who spoke to reporters on Wednesday.

“I am certain that there will be conversations in Mexico about how we can work together on this issue,” the official said about the caravan. “We are certainly looking for concrete results and for solutions that work for both countries.”

President Trump didn’t even wait until the caravan of Hondurans reached Mexico before issuing a very stern warning to the Honduran president on Tuesday threatening to cut U.S. aid immediately!

The President’s fury continued into late Tuesday evening as he fired off another pair of tweets putting Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador on notice.

Anyone entering illegally will be arrested and detained prior to being sent back to their country, President Trump said.

Democrats Just Announce Sick New Way They Plan To Dominate GOP In Midterms To Regain Control

Yet another perfect example if the tyrannical nature of the democrats. They can’t win by the rules, so they change the rules. Dishonest, lying, cheating, thieves. All that party is.

We must vote in November. Stop the democrats!

From The Daily Wire:

When all else fails, change the system.

Leftist luminaries, who weren’t able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they’ve now, apparently, resorted to “reforming” the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives.

NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the “balance of power,” the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size.

“Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement over the status quo — with the potential to impact all branches of government,” activist Steve Vladick opines for NBC’s “Think” platform.

“[C]hanging the size of the House of Representatives — from its current total of 435 seats to 650 seats, or one for every 500,000 constituents — would make that body far more reflective of the country at large; would dramatically affect presidential elections; and, perhaps alone among all of these proposed reforms, would most be in keeping with the wishes of the Constitution’s drafters,” he continues.

Vladick argues that “changing the size of the House of Representatives would make that body far more reflective of the country at large” by narrowing the size of Congressional districts and limiting district size based on population. In most cases, that would involve halving districts.

But it’s not clear how having more districts with fewer people makes the House more representative, since House members are duly elected and, in most cases, making the districts smaller wouldn’t improve a member’s ability to lunch with every last one of his or her constituents.

What it does do, however, is help the Democrats remain in control of one house of Congress at all times by giving larger cities and their immediate metropolitan areas (where there are bigger populations in smaller areas) more seats. Unless large cities with high populations switch to the GOP in the near future, Democrats would hold the clear majority in the House ad infinitum.

So really, the House would become “more reflective” of … Democratic strongholds.

Tricky, tricky.

Unfortunately for Democrats, none of these proposals — expanding the Senate, packing the Supreme Court, or doubling the size of the House — are likely headed for approval.
