The first of several lawsuits has been settled by the company that owns the duck boat that sank on a Missouri lake earlier this year.
William Bright and his wife Janice, both of whom were in their 60’s, were among the 17 people killed when the amphibious craft sank on Table Rock Lake as severe weather was rolling in.
Their three adult daughters and Ripley Entertainment finalized the settlement on Thanksgiving Day.
Terms of the settlement are not being released.
Also among the 17 killed were nine members of a family from Indianapolis.
