Deputy Chief Minister-cum-Home Minister N Chinarajappa directed officials to send NDRF teams to the accident area. The number of passengers in the boat at the time of the accident was also not clear even as reports said at least 10 persons swam to safety.

The boat capsized in Godavari River near Devipatnam in East Godavari district, about 250 km northeast of Amaravathi, the capital city of Andhra Pradesh.

Just 4 days ago, a fire broke in a boat in Godavari while there were no causalities. "Some of us requested that the boat be stopped at Mulapadu, a stop before Mantur, when we noticed that the weather was rough, but the driver chose to go ahead", a survivor said. Five ambulances have been kept on standby to extend medical aid.
