The Aegean Sea attends a new shipwreck. Another baby becomes a victim.

Greece. Aegean Sea. In front of the island of Lesbos (more precisely, of its north-east coast), a boat has been rediscovered. It was “in part sunk” and the “refugees […] rescued […] by the coast guard and other private crafts” are 56. It remains, however, unclear how many people were on board (Il Mattino.it).

Between the migrants there was a “one year old baby”. He had lost consciousness. In hospital, the effort to “reanimate him” was not enough. Another child lost his life in the Mediterranean Sea.

According to the “Greek authorities”, the latter “pulled to safety 542 persons in 12 different rescue operations between Thursday morning and Friday morning. The rescues occurred off the islands of Lesbos, Chios, Samos, Agathonísi and Farmakonisi, in the eastern Aegean Sea” (ibidem).
