Missouri Boat Tragedy: 'Keep us in prayer' says woman who lost nine family members 22.7.2018 DNA: Top News
A woman whose nine family members were among the 17 people killed when a tourist duck boat capsized in a storm on a Missouri lake said on Saturday she is not sure if there is any way to recover from such a loss. "Keep us in prayer. We are going to need it," Tia Coleman, who lost her husband, three children and other relatives, told a news conference from a hospital in Branson, Missouri, where she was taken after the Thursday incident. An amphibious duck boat was carrying 31 passengers including children when a sudden "microburst" storm packing powerful winds hit Table Rock Lake outside Branson, unleashing white-cap waves that swamped the vessel before it sank. Coleman said she plunged deep into the lake and did not know how she was able to survive. She thanked people she dubbed "angels" who jumped into the water and helped pull her to safety. Her nephew also survived. Choking back tears, Coleman talked about the family members she lost, including her two sons and one-year-old daughter Arya. "She had a ...

Ayaz Memon Motiwala, the ecologist - To make his point, Ayaz Memon Motiwala campaigns from the gutters. Running as an independent in Pakistan's largest city of Karachi, Motiwala prefers to get his anti-corruption, pro-environment message out as he lies in pools of sewage -- all while draped in Pakistan's green and white flag. "If they do not cover the gutters then this is my right to sit inside the gutter and protest," Motiwala tells AFP. Motiwala has chosen the water tap as his election symbol. Water is a highly charged issue, with experts saying Pakistan faces "absolute scarcity" -- less than 500 cubic metres available per person nationwide -- by 2025.
