At least 11 migrants killed in a kicker trying to get to Fuerteventura

The new data collected in the last few hours aim that the pneumatic rescued on Tuesday in Fuerteventura left on August 27 from the area of such an occupying, so eleven people would be missing, and not 14 as initially thought.

The testimonies of survivors on arrival were confusing: some assured the medical services that 12 colleagues were missing, while others stated that it was between 58 and 60 people, with the added problem that there were two pending alerts, both pneumatics: one With 42 occupants and another with 58.

But the presence of two minor premiums, 15 and 17 years old and from the Ivory Coast, among the survivors suggests that this is about this vessel.

The NGO walking borders has been able to confirm the presence of these two minors in the pneumatics, information corroborated by EFE in sources of emergency services.

His spokesman, Helena Maleno, believes that the confusion is because the group that was intended to climb the pneumatic was formed, initially by 60 people although not all managed to embark.

According to 1-1-2, 31 people have been rescued, while another person was evacuated in helicopter and corpse.

One of the survivors was evacuated in the same air transfer. Initially, the government delegation gave it to death, although later the Ministry of Health has confirmed that he is entered at the Hospital de Fuerteventura.

Immigrants have reported that they had six days of travel, five of them drifting and that, even, became in front of the island of Lanzarote, until they were lost the engine and were drifting last Friday.

The boat was located at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, about 18 kilometers from the lighthouse of the entitled, was occupied by 32 people (16 men, one of them died, and 16 women)

According to the testimony of the occupants of the pneumatic, in the days prior to the rescue, the deceased were thrown into the water.

Migrants called 1-1-2 of the early morning and the Maritime Salvage Helicopter located them and evacuated two of them to land, the deceased and another person with severe hypothermia.

A boat of maritime rescue rescued the rest of the businesses of the boat and took them to Puerto del Rosario.

Three of these migrants, including a minor, were transferred to the hospital with mild hypothermia.
