The escape to Europe was fatal for at least one person. He had tried to get to the Greek island of Lesbos. The circumstances of his death are tragic.
When trying to cross from Turkey to the Greek island of Lesbos and thus to the EU, a migrant has been killed by all indications because of the freezing cold. Three other people were missing, the Greek local state broadcaster ERA-Nordägäis reported, citing the Greek coast guard. 24 people could be saved.
The migrant group had reached a rocky coast of the island during the night and had to stay there for hours at temperatures below freezing, as reported by local reporters.
