Seven other people were injured of varying consideration in the accident.

The boat (an amphibious vehicle) overturned and sank around 7.10 pm local time (00.10 GMT Friday) supposedly because of strong winds that hit the area of ​​Branson (Missouri), from where it sailed.

The meteorological medium The Weather Channel indicated that sustained winds of more than 65 kilometers per hour and maximums of up to 100 kilometers per hour affected the area at the time of the accident.

The tourist amphibious vehicles are replicas of DUKW military vehicles, which can travel on land and navigate in water.
