The sinking of a duck boat near Branson, Missouri, took the lives of 17 people, including nine members of one family. The amphibious vehicle went down in about 40 feet of water Thursday during rough weather at Table Rock Lake.

The Stone County, Missouri, Sheriff's Office released the names of all victims early Saturday.

The sheriff's office listed nine victims with the surname Coleman, from Indiana. The list included four children, the youngest aged just one.
They were: Angela (45), Arya (1), Belinda (69), Ervin (76), Evan (7) , Glenn (40), Horace (70), Maxwell (2) and Reece (9).

Speaking to CNN International on Friday afternoon, Gov. Mike Parson said, "One lady lost nine of 11 members of her family. ... I had a chance to talk to her, and it's difficult to find the right words to say other than your thoughts and prayers are with her."
The woman's 13-year-old nephew also survived, the governor said. (CNN)
