A Ride the Duck DUKW in Seattle, similar to the amphibious vessel which sank in the Delaware

The US National Transportation Safety Board, NTSB, will hold a public Board meeting to discuss the final report of the Board’s investigation into the collision of a barge, The Resource, that was being towed alongside a tugboat, the Caribbean Sea and a duck tour boat DUKW 34 on 7 July, 2010 in the Delaware River near Philadelphia. Two passengers on the DUKW 34 died in the accident.

The five member Board will vote to adopt the findings, probable cause, and safety recommendations from the final report. A synopsis of the report will appear on the website shortly after the conclusion of the Board meeting. The entire report will appear on the website several weeks later, says the NTSB.

A live and archived webcast of the proceedings will be available on the board’s website. Technical support details are available under “Board Meetings.”
