Share this article


At least eleven people have drowned after a boat capsized and sank in stormy weather in the US.

The amphibious "duck boat" went down at Table Rock Lake in Missouri yesterday evening.

Divers are searching for other victims among the 31 who were on board.

Seven people were taken to hospital.

Wind of 63mph was reported at a nearby airport at the time of the incident, while a restaurant on the lake posted a video showing the choppy waters.

The duck boats - which can drive on land and also go in the water - are a common site in tourist destinations but there have been a number of deaths involving the vehicles over the years.
