Your Safety Is Our Primary Concern
May 30, 2019
Our hearts go out to the victims and families of the May 29 boat crash in Budapest.
Thirty-five people, including 33 from South Korea, were on board the sightseeing boat “The Mermaid” when it was struck by a cruise ship during a storm on the Danube, near the city center. The boat turned on its side and sank in just 7 seconds.
7 people have been rescued, 7 were found dead, and 21 are still missing.
President Moon Jae-in of South Korea explains that rescue and recovery has been slowed by poor weather. South Korea is sending rescue workers to Hungary to assist operations.
We at BG Tours offer our prayers and deepest condolences.
We also want to assure our own passengers that our Big Sunset Cruise and our Ride the Ducks tour are as safe as safe can be.
