2. In 2010 a duck boat capsized in Philadelphia

killing two Hungarian exchange students. The lawyer in that case has called for a ban on duck boats, pointing out that if they go down passengers can be trapped under the canopy, making escape and rescue very difficult. In Philadelphia there was negligence on the part of the captain; he was sentenced to prison.
