#AceNewsReport – June.11: A huge floating crane, barges and rescue personnel were working early on Tuesday morning at Budapest’s Margit Bridge, where the Hableany sightseeing boat sank on May 29 after colliding with a much larger river cruise ship, killing 26 South Korean tourists and two Hungarian crew: As the recovery was underway, four body bags were carried on stretchers to a small police cruise boat waiting nearby: The Hableany, which translates to “mermaid”, sank after a large Swiss-owned cruise liner hit it from behind as both vessels passed under the 19th-century bridge during heavy rain: At the time, survivors said they were lucky to grab onto a drifting lifeboat while watching on as others around them struggled in the dark, rainy waters, shouting for help: It was the worst disaster on Europe’s longest river in half a century.
Key points: Video: None of the tourist on the Soviet-era vessel were wearing life jackets when it was hit. (ABC News)
- High water levels, heavy rain and murky water have impacted search and salvage effort
- The Ukranian captain of the cruise liner that struck the Hableany remains under arrest
- The bodies of eight victims have not yet been recovered and could be trapped inside the hull
Divers inserted four straps under the sunken wreck to allow a huge floating crane to lift the boat: Salvage was expected to be slow because the Hableany was about 70 years old and it would be hard to assess how much damage its structure had suffered during the collision, Hungarian special forces said: The captain’s deck appeared above the water on Tuesday morning.
