Two crew members have died after a river cruise boat smashed into a bridge on the Main-Danube canal in southern Germany, Al-Alam News Network reports.

“The boat will be pulled away. That's done by the authorities or the shipping company. They'll take care of the wreck. The most important thing now is to get the waterway cleared for traffic,” rescue official said.

“The passengers have been taken away in buses by the fire department. They have been put up in hotels by the shipping company and we later brought them their luggage so that they have their personal belongings,” he added.
