The Spanish maritime rescue (Salvamento Maritimo) rescued 72 people from sub-Saharan Africa in the Alboran Sea, between Morocco and Spain, including six women and one child, reports spanish media.
They were aboard a boat that had half capsized, left Friday morning from northern Morocco towards Spain.
According to sources of maritime rescue, a research vessel was sent Friday morning after receiving notification from a Moroccan NGO warning the departure of a boat from an area near the beach of Charrana, near Nador .
Two planes also participated in the research in the Alboran Sea.
When the rescue arrived near the boat, the boat had half sunk, which states that one of the migrants had physical problems as a result of heat stroke, although he restored.
According to media, the migrants are in good health and should be taken to the port of Motril, in the province of Granada.
