The incident did not happen in vast water, but rather close to a dock, as per Schain. He says that a barge pontoon was endeavoring to dock when it struck to different vessels. 

Three travelers of the barge watercraft went to the healing center with non-life undermining wounds. Six different travelers on that vessel were unhurt. 

Schain said he hasn't been told of wounds or subtle elements of the mishap yet.
