Hungarian Family Claims $400 Mln Over Costa Concordia, MTI Says

Aug. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The family of Sandor Feher, a Hungarian who died in the wreck of the Italian cruise liner Costa Concordia, are claiming $400 million compensation from the ship’s operators, Hungarian state news agency MTI reported, citing lawyers representing Feher’s parents.

In the claim filed in a New York court, the family accuses Carnival Plc, Carnival Corp. and their Italian subsidiary, Costa Crociere, of “serious negligence,” according to MTI.

Feher lost his life while trying to help fellow passengers after the Costa Concordia ran aground off the Tuscan coast in January with 4,200 passengers and crew.
