The search is still on as more two women, and a man is still missing. A recreational boat that was carrying ten passengers collided with the other boat that has six people on Saturday night in the well-traveled stretch of the river, as stated by the officer. Both of the boats sank eventually, and the passing boaters pulled the victims who were in the waters one by one. None people were injured out of which two of them were in critical condition, as explained by the authorities.

The crash happened accidentally, and the police are still investigating the cause of this crash. None of the boaters in either of the boats were wearing life jackets that aren’t required basically, but the authorities recommend doing so, as stated by Mohave County Sheriff Doug Shuster.

Both the boats that crashed together are the two popular marinas, and it took place near the Moabi Regional Park, as people enjoyed the Labor Day weekend. Helicopters have been working day and night to find the body remains or any clue of the other three people in that area and the authorities have secured the shoreline. The divers are searching the river by the surface that is as deep as 30 feet. Shuster told the reports that the efforts being made by the authorities and officials would continue until all of those who are missing.
