On Thursday, a duck boat carrying 31 people across Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri,  capsized in a sudden squall, leaving 17 dead.

The tragedy,  possibly compounded by a lack of life vests, as state law does not require them for all passengers, claimed the lives of people aged 1 to 76 who boarded the amphibious vehicle in hope of exploring and learning more about the scenic Ozark landscape.
