Ducks coming back to Delaware?

    Unable to find open water on the Schuylkill, the Duck boats may be rolling back to the Delaware.


    The alternative river surfaced as a possible location for the Ducks following a fatal accident in July, when two Hungarian tourists drowned after the boat they were riding in sunk. It was hit by a city-barge that was being pushed by a tugboat.


    Now that that plan has been nixed, The Daily News reports that Ride the Ducks, a tour-boat company, will now renew its efforts to get back onto the Delaware.
