Nine members of an Indianapolis family were among the 17 people who died when an amphibious duck boat capsized Thursday night during a severe thunderstorm in Branson, Missouri.
“They were very loved. It’s a huge family on all sides,” family member Ingrid Coleman told IndyStar on Friday night from her home in Indianapolis. “It’s unimaginable. I would never have thought I would have lost this number of people this way.”
Eleven members of the Coleman family – three generations – were in Branson on a vacation. Two survived the tragedy, one adult and one child.
