The families of two Hungarian students reached a $17 million settlement in their wrongful death claim regarding a 2010 duck boat accident in which the students were killed on the Delaware River. The students’ families will split $15 million, while the 18 surviving passengers will split another $2 million. The students were visiting the United States through a church exchange program when their amphibious duck boat was crashed into by a barge. The families sued the company that operated the tugboat guiding the barge, and Ride the Ducks, a Georgia company that operated the tour boat.
