The Coast Guard has announced that efforts will begin Monday to salvage the Branson duck boat that capsized on Table Rock Lake on Thursday, killing 17 of the 31 people aboard.
When Coleman surfaced, she waved her arms in the water and shouted for help to a nearby boat.
Santino Tomasetti arrived at the Showboat Branson Belle, a riverboat restaurant not far from where the boat sank, just as first responders were pulling people out of the water.
In footage obtained by KOLR10 News, Coleman recalled her haunting experience after the boat capsized. It does not show passengers jumping clear.

The boat sank in 40 feet (12 meters) of water and then rolled on its wheels into a deeper area with 80 feet (25 meters) of water. With the storm warning in effect, it's unclear why the duck boat, and another that made it back safely, were on the lake.
Coleman lost her husband, three children, and parents-in-law among others. "That canopy becomes what I'll call a people catcher, and people can't get out from under that canopy".
The Coast Guard said it will oversee the salvage operations, which will be coordinated by the Ride the Ducks company, before the boat is turned over to the NTSB.
The man who inspected the duck boats involved in Thursday's tragic accident, near Branson, warned the company about the dangers almost a year ago. The boats' history dates to World War II, when such vessels were a common sight due to their versatility.
Ripley Entertainment, which purchased the Branson Ride the Duck boats past year says if there were storm warning, the boat should not have been on the water. Their height can obscure cars, pedestrians or bicycles from a driver's view, and maintenance problems can be severe. Tia and Donovan Coleman were the only family members who managed to escape the sinking boat.
Keith Holloway, an NTSB spokesman, said it was also unclear whether the Branson duck boat's video-recording device had any audio capabilities.
Carolyn Coleman said she and her husband are planning to make a trip to IN for the funeral after the bodies are released.

"I don't have all the details, but to answer your question, no, it shouldn't have been in the water if, if what happened, happened", he said when asked why the tour continued in such rough conditions. In the report, he explained why the vessels' engines - and pumps that remove water from their hulls - might fail in inclement weather.
"If you watch that video, that water is definitely being slammed up into that exhaust without a doubt", Paul said.
At a press conference Saturday, Earl Weener of the National Transportation Safety Board said an anemometer measured wind speeds of 73 miles per hour across Table Rock Lake. Once the boat is ashore it will be taken to a secure facility as part of the investigation of the crash. "And then I felt the temperature raise, I jumped up and I saw the big boat that sits out there".
Cox Health Center Branson said Sunday night in a tweet that it was "happy to announce" all seven had been discharged. It wasn't until water started making its way into the vessel that Coleman realized the danger they were in.
He declined to share a copy of his report but said he said he is willing to make it available to authorities.
