Three Employees Drown When Rescue Boat Capsizes

Employees #1 through #3 and four coworkers were in a rescue boat in a flooding stream that surrounded a gas station after torrential rains. The rescue boat capsized in the rough water, and Employees #1 through #3 were swept away by the rushing water and drowned. Their bodies were recovered over the next three days, the last one approximately 150 miles from the scene of the accident. The two company managers on site had failed to evacuate the employees and coworkers in a timely manner, before the flood waters rose too high to allow a safe rescue.
