A family is in mourning after 14 children and 2 teachers died when a boat capsized in Harni Lake on the outskirts of Vadodara in Gujarat. The families of the children are in a bad condition and are crying. As soon as the information was received, the families of the children reached the spot and expressed their grief. A parent said that I had come here to pick up my son when the school teacher called that he was not well. However, it was learned that they had gone for a boat ride. Thankfully, some people saved him as the boat capsized.

Who should I blame, my daughter did not survive.

Meanwhile, a parent was sitting in the hospital crying. Crying, she said that her daughter had gone for a boat ride. She had left the house saying that she was going to have a picnic with the school students. She has drowned in the lake and I have come here to collect her body. Who is responsible for this tragedy? I am not lucky, my daughter did not survive.

The eye witness told how there was shouting during the incident.

Eyewitness Mukesh Khaodu said that at the time of the incident, I was sitting in my shop near Harni Lake. When I heard a teacher shouting for help, I immediately jumped into the water because I know how to swim. I saved four children from an overturned boat.
Along with the public, NDRF, fire brigade and ambulance personnel were also present to rescue people who drowned in the lake. Senior officers including Collector AB Gore were supervising the rescue operation.

There were more people sitting in the boat than it could hold.

At the same time, Gujarat Education Minister Kubir Dindur said that an investigation has been ordered when he learned that more than the prescribed number of people were on board the boat. Dindor said he also learned that the students were not wearing life jackets at the time of the accident. We will take action against those found guilty of these errors. Initial investigations also revealed that the boat that was pulled out was from dirty water, officials said. It could seat only 14 people but carried more than 30 people, including 23 children. Let us tell you that 16 people died in the boat accident while 4 are still missing.
