Multiple Boats Sink During Trump Boat Parade In Texas

Written by K. Walker on September 5, 2020

Travis County Sheriff’s Office responded to “many” distress calls on Saturday afternoon.

Massive boat parades were planned all over the U.S. in support of President Trump over the Labor Day weekend.

The “Trumptilla” on Lake Travis in Texas didn’t go so well, however.

According to a Facebook page advertising the boat parade, more than 2,600 people were attending and almost 6,000 people were “interested” in the event.

The weather, however, wasn’t so cooperative. Rough water made conditions rough and several boats sank.

Reports of sinking boats on Lake Travis began coming in on the Citizen app at around 1:20 p.m. Saturday. TSCO confirmed boats in distress throughout the parade route, including at Paradise Cove, West Beach, Point Venture and Hurst Creek.

Austin-Travis County EMS confirmed that as of 3 p.m., TCSO had responded to multiple boats, but there have been no reports of injuries. ATCEMS said some boats went down near Emerald Point Marina.

Texas Parks and Wildlife also assisted by providing one boat.

It is unclear how many boats turned out for the parade however, social media photos large crowds gathering along the route to watch the large flotilla sail by.

The parade was scheduled to kick off at 11.30am and end at Emerald Point at 2pm.

The sheriff’s office said it received the first call around 12.15pm, minutes after the parade began.

Fortunately, there were no reported injuries or deaths.

Let’s hope all those patriots are safe!
