Filed under: Etc., Europe, Safety, Videos, UK, Specialty Visit just about any major city on the water, and you're sure to find duck boats taking tourists out for a different view of the city. The safety of these land and sea vehicles have been questioned following some high-profile accidents including a fatal collision with a barge in Philadelphia back in 2010. Over the weekend, a duck boat in Liverpool, England sank just after entering the water.
