Ticket mix-up blamed for Indiana family deaths
BRANSON, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri woman says nine Indiana family members killed when a duck boat sank were put on the ill-fated boat because of a ticket mix-up.
Tracy Beck, of Kansas City, says she and her family were waiting in line for another boat when the Indiana family stopped talking to have a group picture taken by the tour company.
Beck says the ticket taker realized the family should have boarded at a different location in Branson.
The family had to get new tickets and was put on the boat that eventually sank. Beck said she recognized the family When pictures began circulating Friday
Beck says the water became choppy while they were on the lake and the captain decided to return to shore.
But she says she doesn’t blame the operator of the doomed boat.
