He further said he believed the boat turned over at around 8 in the evening due to the stormy weather where the winds of around 60 mph hit the boat

In a video shared by Jeanie Phillips-Hudson Carr, two boats can be seen struggling to reach the land while the wind started to swirl. The second boat can be seen slowly turning and sinking into the waters towards the end of the video.

Carr also shared a second video where the workers on the showboat can be heard asking for a rope to rescue the stricken amphibious boat. Carr wrote alongside the video as,

We are at Branson and on the showboat! A storm came in as we got on and there was [sic] 2 ducks that you ride out there and 1 went under. Not sure if everyone o it is ok.

Many divers were a s sisting in the effort; however, the Sheriff reported that they had ended the search for the night. Later, the National Transportation Safety Board said that the investigators would continue the rescue operation on Friday morning sharing a Twitter post.
