According to an ABCNEWS article, two young tourists from Hungary are missing and several people were injured after a Philadelphia boating accident on July 7, 2010 . The popular "duck boat," an amphibious vehicle, was reported to have collided with a 250 foot long barge at around 2:00 p.m. near Penn's Landing in Philadelphia . The collision caused the boat to capsize.


According to the news report, the boat began having mechanical issues shortly after it entered the water. A fire started onboard and the boat's engine was shut down. As it waited for rescue, the collision occurred. Over 30 people, some children, went overboard and a handful of rescued passengers were taken to a nearby hospital. The National Transportation and Safety Board will conduct an investigation.


The firm of White and Williams LLP has extensive experience litigating these kinds of boating accidents in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and New Jersey area.  We recently wrote a free article on the antiquated limitation of damage defense in boating accident cases.
