In mid-November, the oil tanker "Alithini II" sets off from Lagos, the capital of Nigeria, on a voyage to Las Palmas. What no one suspects at this point: Even three stowaways manage to ride along in an adventurous way.
The authorities did not provide any information about the origin of the rescued. "They were tired and showing signs of hypothermia and upon arrival at the port they were treated by health services," the statement said. The rescued were "moderately dehydrated" and needed hospital treatment, wrote the emergency number 112 on Twitter.
According to tracking website shipfinder.com, the Maltese-flagged "Alithini II" took off from Lagos, the capital of Nigeria, on November 17. On Monday, the oil tanker arrived at the port of Las Palmas in the Canary Islands, off the northwest coast of Africa.
