Voice of Europe: Spain rescues 520 migrants at sea – baby dies

The maritime rescue service in Spain report that a baby has died despite rescue efforts after a small boat carrying migrants sank in the Mediterranean Sea east of the Strait of Gibraltar.

 

The tragic death came as more than 500 other migrants were rescued. The bottom of the rubber boat split, according to reports by the Spanish maritime service, with 56 of the migrants being hurled into the water, when the rescue craft reached it on Saturday.

Rescuers saved 55 men, women and children but were unable to resuscitate the infant. In total, there were 520 people trying to cross from North Africa to Spain on the human trafficker’s small boat on Saturday.
