The boats have three Americans, two armed soldiers each on board.

NEWSVERGE reporter who was on-sight gathered that the victims were in a separate boat with one of the boats running at a high speed on the water.

An eye witness told NEWSVERGE that it was wave of the water that threw the one on high speed off balance to hit the second boat which up-turned the two boats and their occupants into water.
