At least seven people died after a sightseeing boat with 34 people on board sank in the Danube River in Budapest on Wednesday, with another 19 people still missing.
According to reports, seven people were rescued and sent to the local hospital, while divers and rescuers look for possible survivors among the missing passengers and crew members.
