A video obtained by this writer shows a huge crowd gathered at the scene of the accident wailing and unsure of what to do next.

The boat might have been overloaded when it sank this evening at the Pier Beach as reports indicate that it had over sixteen people in it.

A few months ago, a boat capsized in Kisumu killing two guys who had gone to the lakeside city for a burial of their friend.

Another accident happened in Mombasa a few days ago when a boat full of Tanzanians sank and they had to be rescued by the Kenya Navy.
