Victim of Duck Boat Tragedy Shares her Story


BRANSON, Mo. — “I can’t see anybody, I couldn’t hear anything, I couldn’t hear screams, it feels like I was out there on my own,” Tia Coleman, one of the victims of the Duck Boat tragedy, said.

“And I was yelling, screaming and finally I said, ‘Lord just let me die, let me die, I can’t keep drowning, I just can’t keep drowning,’ that’s what I felt.”

” And then I just let go and I started floating. I float to the top I felt the water temperature raise to warm. I felt the temperature rise I jumped up and I saw the big boat that sits out there I don’t know what kind of boat its huge though.”

“And when I saw they were throwing out life jackets to people and I said, ‘Jesus keep me just keep me so I can get to my children. Keep me, Lord.’”
