NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) - Tourists got a bit more than they bargained for after a Newport 'Duck boat' was left stranded in the middle of the Ohio River.
Ride the Ducks Newport offers sightseeing tours in a vehicle equipped for both land and water.
One of the tour group's Duck boats stalled out in the middle of the Ohio River on Monday morning.
A second Duck boat had to retrieve the broken down vehicle full of passengers. The tour group was towed to shore without incident.
A Duck boat is the colloquial term for a DUKW, a six-wheel amphibious truck designed by the military during WWII.
