A hotel ship collided with a small boat on the Danube River near the village of Veroce, 55 km north of Budapest, causing the fatalities, the police said.

According to Xinhua, the incident came to light Saturday night when a man with a head injury was found near Veroce. Police then initiated a search operation using drones and found a man's body on the shore south of Veroce, said Soma Csecsi, spokesperson for the Budapest Police Headquarters.

A woman's body was found later in the Danube River near the Megyeri Bridge. Among the eight adults on the small craft, five went missing, Csecsi added.
