At least 40 missing after ferry capsizes in Indian river

National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams from Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam and State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) teams from Kakinada and Visakhapatnam had also been deployed.

They were headed to the scenic Papikondalu, or "Papi Hills" in the West Godavari District of Andhra Pradesh. There were 20 people on the boat when it capsized and 10 of them including two women swam to safety.
