Second anniversary of Danube tourist boat tragedy marked

The Ecumenic Church and employees of the Hungarian Anti-Terrorism Centre (TEK) on Saturday marked the second anniversary of a boat accident on the Danube, which killed 28 people.

On May 29, 2019, the Viking Sigyn cruise ship collided with the Hableany sightseeing boat which had 33 South Korean tourists on board and a crew of two Hungarians. Seven tourists were rescued from the water after the collision and the rest died. One of the bodies has not been recovered. The trial of the captain of the Viking Sigyn is still under way.

At separate commemorations on Saturday, TEK employees laid a wreath at Margaret Bridge, and Mihaly Toth of the Ecumenic Church led a service on a ship at the place of the accident.
