A floating crane raised the Hableany from waters beneath the Margit bridge in downtown Budapest, TV footage showed, raising hopes for finding the bodies of seven South Korean passengers who are still unaccounted for after the May 29 sinking.

The wreck of a sunken tour boat was pulled from the Danube River early Tuesday (Budapest time), almost two weeks after its deadly sinking left 26 South Koreans dead or missing.

Search operations to find the missing will also continue after the ship is salvaged, Song Shun-keun, a defense attache at the South Korean Embassy in Budapest, said. Seven people were rescued after the nigh-time collision in heavy rain.

Rescue officials said Sunday that preparations for the lift, including divers installing four wire harnesses under the Hableany (Mermaid), were almost complete, with some technical and security details pending.

"The boat will soon be liftable", Jasenszky said, adding that the process of lifting the boat, which lies around 9 metres (29 1/2 feet) below the surface, could start early Tuesday but would not take place in darkness.

Jasenszky said divers would search the boat for any bodies in the hull once it was close to the surface and inspect the wreck's condition. Crews have struggled to assess how much damage the 70-year-old boat sustained in the collision, salvage experts said. Hungary's water management office said Monday that the river's water level would fall faster than expected in Budapest in coming days.

Viking confirmed that he was on board the Idun at the time of the April collision but said he was "not serving as the ship's captain at the time of the incident".

On Thursday, Hungarian prosecutors said the captain of the Viking Sigyn was already under investigation over a separate accident in the Netherlands in April involving another Viking ship, the Idun.
