2. On Sunday, an Indiana family filed a $100 million lawsuit against the owners and operators of a Ride the Ducks tourist boat that sank in a lake near Branson, Missouri, on July 19, killing 17 people. Nine of those victims came from the family that filed the suit, which states, “This tragedy was the…predicted result of decades of unacceptable, greed-driven and willful ignorance of safety by the Duck Boat industry in the face of specific and repeated warnings that their Duck Boats are death traps for passengers and pose grave danger to the public on water and on land.” The AP reports that the lawsuit also alleges that the boat operators violated their own company policy by allowing the tour to continue despite severe-weather warnings.
