A Hableány hajó baleset mentői 04
Gabor Kovacs, lead diver of the search and rescue operations of the Havaria Emergency Management Nonprofit Organization, stands in the River Danube at Baja, southern Hungary, 12 July 2019. 'We tried the impossible. The drift was horrendous, it pressed me against the ladder with full force, I could barely detach from it', he recalls. He dived several times after the initial survey, and recovered a body from the river. The most dramatic part of that recovery was when his and the victim's lead rope became entangled. Kovacs then sought the help of a colleague, who submerged to attach a new rope to the corpse, which turned out to be a tough two-hour struggle.
