Mourners leave flowers for duck boat victims as officials probe for answers
BRANSON, Mo. - It began with a single flower placed on each car left overnight on the parking lot at Ride the Ducks Branson, the company that owned the amphibious tourist boat that took its final fateful ride on storm-tossed Table Rock Lake.
The high winds and 5-foot waves, seemingly emerging from a quiet summer evening, capsized the boat Thursday evening, killing 17 people, ranging in age from 1 to 70 and including nine relatives visiting from Indiana.
By late Friday night, the hoods of two remaining cars were overfilled with flowers, with space left only on the tops of the vehicles and on the ground around them for folks to add to the collection.
Surrounding a vehicle shared by two of the victims, hundreds gathered to pay their respects and mourn those lost Thursday night. Fourteen people survived.
The majority of the those paying their respects during the quiet vigil didn't know the victims, but said Branson, a popular tourist destination, is a family, and coming together is what the town is all about.
Leading the candlelit vigil was Zach Klein - a field technician for the Taney County Sewer District - who didn't personally know the people he came there to honor. But when he was given the opportunity to speak, he didn't turn it down.
He talked for five minutes to the crowd of people wiping away tears or holding their loved ones close.
"Right now, we're in a time to mourn," Klein said. "We don't know when we're going to go meet our heavenly father. Be there for the people who need you when they need you."
The end of his speech brought prayers and song: "Amazing Grace" and "God Bless America."
