Travis County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Kristen Dark told The Associated Press that there were no reports of fatalities and investigators have not determined how many boats sank.

Foul play is not suspected, Dark said.

According the Austin Statesman, hundreds took part in the parade. Several boaters need to be rescued after their boats began travelling together and sank due to the choppy water conditions.

Large wakes were reportedly seen during the parade.
