Around 12:30 p.m. the Lake Mead Interagency Communication Center received a radio distress call from the “Desert Princess,” reporting that the vessel lost power with 163 passengers on board. The strong winds, which were gusting above 30 miles per hour at the time, pushed the triple decker Mississippi-style paddle wheeler into slips at the Las Vegas Boat Harbor and Lake Mead Marina. The vessel was pushed toward the breakwater where personnel were able to safely offload around 60 passengers onto patio boats. Winds shifted, causing the vessel to drift from the breakwater. Around this time, the crew was able to restart the vessel and pilot it back to the landing where the remaining passengers safely disembarked. One crew member was injured and was transported to a hospital by ambulance with minor injuries.
