Seven South Korean tourists were rescued after the May 29 collision between the Hableany (Mermaid) sightseeing boat and the Viking Sigyn river cruise ship.

A huge floating crane may be able to lift the Hableany out of the water in the coming days.

However, the Adam Clark, named after the Scottish engineer who oversaw construction of Budapest's Chain Bridge completed in 1849, was docked Thursday in north Budapest, as the Danube's high water level is not allowing it to reach the site of the wreckage, near the Hungarian Parliament building.

Four bodies have been recovered from the wreckage of a boat that capsized in Budapest's Danube River with a group of tourists on board. The Mermaid boat sank in seconds on 29 May after a large cruise liner struck it from behind under a bridge in the Hungarian capital during heavy rain. A total of 26 South Korean tourists and two Hungarian crew members died in what was the worst disaster on the river in half a century. The bodies of all but four of the victims have now been recovered. One of the bodies was spotted as the captain's cabin came to the surface, a spokesman for Hungary's special forces said.
