Secretary-General of the Federation of Passenger Ship Operators: Saving human life is always a priority
The sailors are prepared for a possible catastrophe, following the exact instructions in the given situation, said Imre Horváth, General Secretary of the Naval Passenger Association at M1. In all cases, saving lives is a priority.
He also talked about many people asking why authorities were only briefly informed about the accident a few minutes later. He emphasized that when the Mermaid sank, first responders saved people in the water, as they had to act as quickly as possible. Water can hit people, sway, swallow a lot of water, be subjected to extreme physical stress, so every minute counts – he emphasized.
He believes he will continue to travel with more boat safety, like walking. This is also illustrated by the fact that the most recent history of Hungary is the II. During World War II, a ship exploded because of a well, but no accidents have occurred since. He added that ship traffic has increased in recent years, but the alliance is working to limit them to busier sections according to appropriate rules.

The live transmission of the operation, M1, cost six hours according to preliminary information.
