Several boats sink at Trump boat parade on Texas lake

A boat parade in support of President Trump at Lake Travis in Texas on Saturday, with waves and choppy waters that led at least four boats to sink and others to crash into rocks, local officials said. No one was hurt.

“That was truly an exceptional number of boats,” said Kristen Dark, public information officer for the Travis County Sheriff’s Office, whose deputies patrol the lake. “Several of the boats did sink.”

There was no evidence of foul play, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Kristen Dark said. No injuries or medical emergencies were reported at the parade on Lake Travis, located northwest of Austin.

“Some were taking on water, some were stalled, some were capsizing, it was all types of different things,” Dark said.
