I really doubt that even if the tug had heard the duck calling it could not have altered course in time. These barges are huge! Tugs pull or push then up down the river all the time. right up to Trenton. Hundreds of tons just doesn't yield to quick maneuvers. It just seems to me that the ducks company could have an escort boat when the things are out there, but what do I know.
