The death toll is rising after an amphibious tour bus capsized in a Missouri lake. At least eleven people are dead and seven others are hurt. Divers are searching for five people who remain unaccounted for this morning. The accident happened last night in Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri as a line of thunderstorms moved through the area. The duck boat capsized and sank. Southern Stone County Fire Protection District said multiple agencies responded to a mass casualty call that came in just after 7p.m. last night. The “duck boat” was carrying 31 people, including children. Seven people were hospitalized, including two with critical injuries, according to reports. Stone County Sheriff Doug Rader said “I believe it was caused by the weather,” during a news briefing.
