July 22, 2018; Springfield, MO, USA; College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Missouri held a community wide memorial service on Sunday, July 22, 2018 for the families, friends and victims of the duck boat tragedy on Table Rock Lake.

A sunken duck tourist boat that led to the deaths of 17 people faced near-hurricane-like conditions on Table Rock Lake Thursday.

The National Transportation Safety Board and multiple duck boat companies, including Ride The Ducks of Seattle, declined to comment. I don't know who they were.

Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader previously confirmed to that media outlet that the captain was among those who survived the accident. "Help me get to my babies", adding, "Lord, if I can't make it, there's no use keeping me here".

Among those who were hospitalized was Tia Coleman, whose husband, three children and five other relatives died.

A crane from a southwest Missouri salvage operation has already been brought to a staging area near the site where the duck boat went down, close by the Showboat Branson Belle.

"I thought I was dead", she said, speaking to reporters at Cox Medical Center Branson, where she's been recovering from her injuries. She is one of two in her family to have survived.

"I just can't imagine trying to deal with nine people in your family". After they stopped for a picture, she said, a ticket taker realized they should have boarded at a different location and reassigned them.

"When that water came over the boat I didn't know what happened", Coleman, of IN, said at a press conference at a hospital on Saturday.

Twenty-nine passengers and two crew members were aboard. Coleman said. Her sister-in-law also died. I felt the water temperature raise to warm", said Coleman, "I saw the big boat that sits out there, and when I saw them, they were throwing life jackets out to people and I said keep me lord, keep me, keep me so I could get to my children.

"We were actually at the pool when the storm hit the day before, though we had 10 of the 15 people in our party going on the boat".

"My husband would want me to say this - he would want the world to know that on this boat we were on, the captain had told us "don't worry about grabbing the life jackets - you won't need them" so nobody grabbed them as we listened to the captain as he told us to stay seated", Coleman told Fox News.

McCay says Hamann told him the couple had just gone on a paddle boat and were planning to go again.

In total, 17 died on the capsized boat.

"They were jumping in and saving people".

Coleman said the crew told passengers they were going into the water first, before the land-based part of their tour, because of the incoming storm.
