More Bodies Found as Disaster River Cruise Boat Raised in Budapest

Efforts to raise sunken Danube tour boat starting in Hungary

Divers, meanwhile, were continuing to search the hull of the boat in the early stages of the lifting procedure.

If all goes well, the wreck will be placed on a barge near the crane, from where it will be taken over by Budapest police investigating the collision. Seven people were rescued after the nighttime collision amid heavy rain.

Rescue crews raised a sunken tour boat out of the Danube River on Tuesday, shortly after four more bodies were recovered from the vessel involved in a collision with a river cruise ship almost two weeks ago. So far, 19 South Koreans have been confirmed dead and seven remain missing. Pumps were used to remove water from the hull and the rest of the tourist boat was slowly brought to the surface.

The bodies recovered were believed to be those of three South Koreans and one of the Hungarian captain of the boat, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.

Salvage workers have recovered the wreck of a tourist boat that capsized in Budapest after a collision two weeks ago in a disaster that claimed 28 lives.

Swiss-based Viking Cruises Ltd, which owns the Viking Sigyn, has said it is cooperating with Hungarian investigators.

At one point, one member of the rescue crew fell into the fast-flowing water and had to be rescued after nearly being swept away.

Hungary's interior minister and a South Korean official have visited the accident site at Budapest's Margit Bridge, where rescue crews were using a huge floating crane to lift the sunken tour boat.

Search and recovery efforts have been complicated by the Danube's high springtime water levels, its fast flow and near-zero underwater visibility.

The captain was held under suspicion of misconduct in waterborne traffic leading to mass casualties, police have said.

Meanwhile, Budapest police said they would again inspect the Viking Sigyn, the cruise ship involved in the collision, which sailed on shortly after the crash but was back in Hungary, docked Monday at the northern town of Visegrad.
