UNGARN: Ausflugsschiff auf der Donau in Budapest gesunken infographic

Touristen verunglücken im Ausflugsschiff nach Kollision

Graphic News

May 30, 2019 -- Einige südkoreanische Touristen sind tot, noch viele weitere werden vermisst. Das Ausflugsschiff auf der Donau in Budapest wurde von einem größeren Hotelschiff gerammt und ging binnen weniger Sekunden unter. Wenig Hoffnung besteht auf weitere Überlebende, die Donau führt leichtes Hochwasser bei einer Wassertemperatur von 12 Grad und schweren Regenfällen.

The boat was carrying 33 South Korean passengers and two Hungarian crewmembers when it collided with a larger cruise boat travelling in the same direction during a nighttime tour on Wednesday night.

Seven people were confirmed as dead and 21 others are missing. Seven people were rescued.

The vessel, called Hableany (meaning: mermaid) was a 27-metre, double-decker river cruise boat with a 150-horsepower engine and could hold up to 60 people, its owner, Panorama Deck Ltd., told state media.

A massive rescue effort continues on a river swollen by heavy rainfall.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
