Connecticut residents may have heard about a duck boat accident that took place on July 19 in Branson, Missouri. As a result of the accident, a family member of nine people who died in the incident filed a lawsuit against the boat operator. The lawsuit claims that the company that ran the boats knew that they weren't safe. It also claims that the boats were taken out even though a severe thunderstorm warning had been issued.

Among the dead were 632 truck drivers, 116 farmers and 62 landscapers.
