On Wednesday night, a boat carrying over thirty South Korean tourists and two Hungarian crew members sank after it collided with another vessel on the Danube River. Seven have been rescued, seven were found dead, but 21 are still missing, and a search operation is still in progress.
Since the seven who were rescued were not wearing life jackets, it’s unlikely that those still missing are wearing them. Powerful currents on the river are believed to be one of the reasons for the accident, as heavy rainfall had made those currents stronger than usual. A criminal investigation has also been launched, as it’s unclear which vessel was responsible for the collision, or whether it could have been prevented.
