43 drown off Greek coast

Transportation Disaster0 Comments

At least 43 migrants drown when their wooden sailboat capsizes on the voyage from Turkey to Europe. 17 of the dead are children. Greek Coast Guard officials are unclear as to why the boat sank off the coast of Kalymnos, but say that winds were strong at the time. Fishing vessels take part in search and rescue operations. One local fisherman, Michalis, seemed shocked by the migrants’ equipment.

They weren’t wearing life jackets. I don’t believe it. They couldn’t swim. The hospital is now full of dead people.
