Over the Labor Day weekend, a Pro Trump Rally took place on the shores of Lake Travis near the state capital, Austin. The event took a turn for the worse when the water turned choppy due to the sheer amount of boats on the water. At least five boats were sunk in the waters and the supporters were forced to dive into the lake waters.

No injuries have since been reported. Authorities claim that the choppiness of the waters was due, most likely, to the sheer amount of vessels on the water in close quarters at once. More than 8,000 people checked that they were attending the event, dubbed the Lake Travis Trump Boat Parade, on Facebook. 

It is unclear currently how many boats were out on the water at the time, or how many boats were sunk. On Sunday, three were pulled for the waters while at least two were left submerged in the lake.

“We responded to multiple calls of boats in distress, several of them sank,” Travis County Sheriff’s Office Spokeswoman, Kristen Dark, said. “We had an exceptional number of boats on the lake today… When they all started moving at the same time, it generated significant waves.”
