Timelapse of Hungary boat wreckage being pulled out



A crane places the wreckage of the sightseeing boat on a transporting barge at Margaret Bridge, the scene of the fatal boat accident in Budapest, Hungary, Tuesday, June 11, 2019. The Hableany sightseeing boat carrying 33 South Korean tourists and two Hungarian staff was crashed by a large river cruise ship and sank in the River Danube on May 29. Seven tourists survived, twenty people died, eight persons are still missing. AP

Salvage crews in Budapest recovered four bodies on Tuesday (June 11) as they slowly lifted the wreck of a boat two weeks after it capsized on the Danube River.


The Mermaid boat sank on May 29 after a large cruise liner hit it from behind under a bridge in the Hungarian capital during heavy rain.

Twenty-six South Korean tourists and two Hungarian crew died in the worst disaster on the river in half a century.

The bodies of all but four of the victims have now been recovered. (Reuters)
