Reports say that 14 bodies have been recovered so far. The panic-stricken passengers tried to rush to one side, but the inexperienced driver failed to control and the boat overturned. "It capsized near a curve as it approached the Pavitra Sangamam point and most of the people were trapped underneath and were killed", an Assistant Commissioner of Police said. A survivor in the incident also alleged that the boat operator was trying for ferry more passengers and that it was overloaded. Several teams of National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) were rushed to the spot to rescue people. The boat was sailing towards the confluence of Krishna and Godavari rivers from Bhavani islands when it capsized.

Local fishermen at Ferry swung into action immediately and rescued 15 passengers. 32 of the victims belong to Ongole town.
