Investigation into fatal boat collision to continue

 PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Investigators in Philadelphia are set to continue their search for clues about this week's Delaware River collision that left two Hungarian students dead.

   A duck boat carrying 35 passengers and two crew was hit by a barge Wednesday and sank.

   The body of 16-year-old Dora Schwendtner was recovered Friday, and a second body retrieved later in the day has been identified as that of 20-year-old Szablcs Prem (SAH'-bolch prehm). Both deaths have been ruled accidental drownings. Coast Guard officials are working with the Hungarian embassy to arrange return of the remains. A private memorial service for the victims is planned today in Philadelphia.

   The NTSB plans to interview the five crew members on the tug that was pushing the barge that hit the duck boat. Investigators have already talked to the duck boat crew members and 16 of the passengers.
