Duck accident in Philly

Posted By on Thu, Jul 8, 2010 at 10:03 AM

There's been another accident involving a duck, the amphibious military vehicle that has become a familiar sightseeing feature around the country, including in Hot Springs. Two passengers are missing in the Philadelphia accident, which is under investigation, and the tour company, Ride the Ducks, has suspended its operations nationwide temporarily. Ride the Ducks does not operate in Hot Springs, but it does operate in Branson, Mo.

Here's some background on the revival of the Hot Springs duck business following a 1999 accident that took 13 lives. Stiffer federal regulation of the craft followed that disaster, which did not involve a craft operated by the city's current tour operator.
