31 People Rescued As Amphibious Tour Bus Sinks
There were 31 people on board the Yellow Duckmarine when its landing at Liverpool's Albert Dock went awry shortly before 4 p.m. An eyewitness tells the news outlet the vessel took about four minutes to sink, and many people - including children - had to climb out and swim to safety. More than two-dozen people were taken to the hospital to be treated, reporting injuries that ranged from cuts and bruises to shock.
The tour company told the BBC it was working with the coastguard and police to find out the root of the problem. In March, Yellow Duckmarine was banned from going into the water after one of its boats sank, forcing passengers to be moved onto a pontoon. Just last month, three vehicles were declared safe to give tours again, but obviously it seems like everything hasn't been sorted out.
The video below shows people making their escape from the bus, including a mother holding a baby above the water.
