German rescuers from the Sea-Eye association brought 353 migrants aboard in the Mediterranean. According to its own statements, the Regensburg organization initially rescued 290 people from an overcrowded wooden boat on Wednesday. After the morning’s operation, the crew of the ship “Sea-Eye 4” discovered a rubber dinghy with 63 women and men, 13 of them minors.
They were also brought onto the ship, which 416 refugees and migrants were now on after a first mission on Monday. Among them are many children and even a baby. The “Sea-Eye 4” is now waiting for a port in Italy or Malta to be designated to bring the rescued ashore. It often takes days for authorities to grant permission.
