Passengers capsize boat to look at nudists

A boat carrying 60 people across a Texas lake capsized after the passengers ran to one side to look at nude bathers.

The incident happened on Lake Travis near Austin on Sunday.

The sunbathers dived in to help pull the passengers to the bank. It's believed all of them made it to safety.

Two women aged 20 and 25 were taken to hospital with minor injuries, says The Sun.

The revellers were moored alongside Hippie Hollow nudist beach during Splash Day - a twice-yearly naked festival for gays and lesbians.

The boat's skipper shouted at the passengers to get away from the rail, but his warning came too late.

Nudist Joshua Rapier said: "All I heard was screaming. We were having fun then looked at the water as one of the barges started tipping over.

"People were falling out and trying to get away from the barge. Some people were trapped."
