Duck boat stall strands tourists in San Francisco Bay 

A group of tourists hoping to get a unique view of San Francisco aboard a Ride The Ducks tour got more than they bargained for: a stalled boat in San Francisco Bay.

Smoke was reported on the boat just before noon Wednesday in McCovey Cove near AT&T Ballpark, according to Fire Department spokeswoman Lt. Mindy Talmadge.

Though no one was injured, the boat did have “engine trouble” and was towed back to shore by a tug boat, Talmadge said.

The cause of the engine trouble is unknown. It is not known how many people were aboard the boat at the time.

The smoke and a subsequent flash from the boat was called in by someone on shore, according to Talmadge.

Representatives from Ride The Ducks were not immediately available.
