Chad Dickson, Bill Barnet, Director discussed on Ernie Brown
Eighteen minutes after the top of the hour thank you for. Being here Chad Dickson also joining us. In the, newsroom and of course. Bill Barnet's are tech up and musical director. Doing his part keep the broadcasts from going. Down the old toilet there. All, right only get. Back to. This duct thing I have some audio from this guy this boat. Sank seventeen people die. On this thing it's it's a car really. That can go on the water it's a boat. And a car and. They're kind of cool looking and they're kind of fun to ride in on land I wrote one in Seattle across lake. Washington. And I gotta tell you, I always felt like it was a choppy day I felt like it felt unstable. To me it just kind of felt like it was swaying an awful lot and a little water splashed in a little bit and everybody kind of laughed about that but. I I don't like that I don't want water splashing on the boat. I want to be on the cruise ship I wanna be in luxury yeah I do too all right here's a witness who said this started out like any. Other tour the conditions were fine it's just like any. Day in the Ozarks those storms can come out, of anywhere and They do frequently there was other boats on. The lake at, the time private boats you could see them in the video, and you could also see them they were the first. Ones out. There to start doing the rescuing and. Here he is one the boat started having some problems. Once we saw it start taking. Water through the front we. Knew nothing was going good from. There and then it started taking, water from the back right corner and then just stuff went downhill from there yeah that's. What eventually sank it it just took, on, too much water in a, capsized you almost want to just get out of. The boat quick as you can say to. Fill up you know what's what's interesting about that is watching the video I kind of expected somebody to jump out. The side but you don't something I. Don't know, who would do that. Though when you think about it I'm gonna. Boat and yes we're taking on water but. The last thing I want. To, do is now. Get out. Into that water that is looks like there's a hurricane on it. I mean we have. Surf out there on a lake and this. Is not this massive Blake then only vague You're also. Jumping next to a big thing that could hit you. A knock you out that's true I mean you really gotta be hopefully at the back of the bus I mean there would be a lot of. Thing, if that's me hopefully you. Never know unless you're in that situation but there's and. I'm sure that's why they didn't jump out because the the boats rocking all over the place yes. It seems like it's going one direction but it may not. Have felt like it was going one direction somebody may, have thought hey if I jump out this way the waves could. Push the boat this way, could hit me or the, wheels underneath that are, propelling the boat or whenever the engine is the propelling I could run into it it's really it's a I think this is so. Many people, died because this is a freak thing you're, kind of trapped you don't know. What, to do yeah And. I don't, know that anybody could have been anybody was wearing life jackets. Or not, I don't know if that was a requirement I know, when I use it yeah I use the duck, boat that one time that I did it I they didn't ask us to put one on and I thought. That, would have been probably a law thing, you know if the boat is a certain size but you know. It's funny everybody just, loves, those duck boats there you'd see, one and everybody it's like seeing the blimp flying overhead oh look there's the blimp everybody's gotta stop and look at it for a second and they watch what is it the..
