Party Boat Capsized on a Houston Lake, resulting in one death and multiple injured. Our team at VB Attorneys is prepared to help the victims.
On Sunday. August 15, a party boat capsized on a Texas lake during a thunderstorm. The incident occurred on Lake Conroe with 53 boat passengers on board the double-decker boat. A Texas man is dead and others are injured as a result of the capsize.
While the inclement weather is thought to be the cause of the capsizing, it has not officially been determined what caused the incident. The boat capsized at 8:12 pm Sunday night, dumping each passenger into the diesel-fueled water. Local neighbors began to take action and rescue people from their docks and waterfronts. After the rescue, all of the passengers were decontaminated to remove the diesel before they were taken back to their cars.
The double-decker sternwheeler paddleboat was built in 1986 and has hosted numerous tours and private parties in the past. The investigation has yet to be completed, but the negligent parties must be held accountable.
