Man these poker runs are getting out of control. They probably weren't wearing lifelines OR kill switches. Do we really need to go this fast?

....... wait Cruisers?

I guess that means accidents CAN happen to anyone. I hope everyone comes out ok.

By: Capital News 9 web staff

The Warren County Sheriff's Department has confirmed that the Lake George tour boat "Ethan Allen" has flipped over in the lake.

There is no word of any injuries at this time. The boat was reportedly carrying about 50 people when it overturned.

Callers said a staging area has been set up at Hearth Stone Point.

According to the Post Star, the 40-foot boat is run by Shoreline Cruises in Lake George.

Capital News 9 will bring you more information as it becomes available.
