Injured on Philadelphia Duck Boat Accident


Posted on Jul 08, 2010

Search crews continue into a second day for missing passengers from a duck boat that sank after a collision with a Philadelphia city-owned vessel.  The accident occurred on July 7, 2010 when a duck boat, operated by Ride the Ducks Corporation, became disabled on the Delaware River in Philadelphia due to mechanical failure and was impacted by a 250 foot city-owned barge that was being pushed by tugboat.  The collision caused the duck boat to sink and cast its thirty-seven passengers into the forty foot deep waters.  News outlets have reported injuries to those aboard the duck boat and two passengers remain missing.
