MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas — A party boat with more than 50 people aboard capsized in Texas on Saturday, leaving one person dead.
Those storms created four-to-five-foot waves that caused the boat to overturn in the lake, officials told the media outlets.
Everyone aboard the boat was reportedly pulled from the water, including a 1-year-old child.
Montgomery County Judge Mark Keough wrote in a Facebook post that two people were taken to an area hospital as a result of the incident. One of those people died and CNN identified him as 80-year-old Karl Kazenberg of Montgomery.
Crews were still working to remove the boat from the water on Sunday.
A resident in a nearby apartment complex told KTRK that he saw the boat capsize.
“I was watching the football game, and I noticed that the boat was going to hit the deck and then it stopped on time, and it started backing up. Then, all of a sudden, it just flipped over,” said resident Louis DuLuna.
