Shipwreck with migrants in Mykonos: Three dead people were recovered


A man and two women were recovered dead after a shipwreck carrying migrants off Mykonos.

A search and rescue operation by the port corps is underway since the morning, after the detection of two migrants, a Syrian and a Palestinian, in the sea area northeast of Mykonos who were allegedly on board a boat with other people, which capsized.

As reported by the migrants themselves, who were rescued and transported safely to the island's port, a total of 17 people were on board the plastic speedboat that sank, including 4-5 women and a 7-year-old child.
