Local police found the body about 4 kilometers south of the
accident site at around 11:29 p.m. Wednesday.

The victim has been identified as a South Korean man in his
60s, according to a team of South Korean officials dispatched to Hungary soon after the news of the accident. 

The vessel was carrying 33 South Korean tourists when it
capsized following a collision with a larger cruise ship on May 29.
Among them, 16 have been confirmed to be dead and 10 others remain missing. Seven were rescued.
