ATHENS, April 10 (GCT) - Greece rescued 14 migrants, including eight children, from a rocky shore on the island of Chios on Wednesday, the coastguard said. Search-and-rescue operations are ongoing.

The migrants are believed to have reached the Aegean Sea island near Turkey on a dinghy, a coastguard official said. The number of people originally on board is unclear.

Tragedy at Sea:

According to the Coast Guard's press office, three survivors were found ashore at dawn, and a shipwreck was reported shortly after midnight on Wednesday in the Kardamyla sea area, Chios. These reports included the possibility of three people deceased.

With this information, a search and rescue operation was launched immediately across the area. Fourteen people have been rescued from the rocky coast so far.

Uncertainties Remain:

Three people, a woman with her child and another man, were transferred to Chios Hospital for medical attention. Eleven rescued migrants are currently at the Chios port office. Authorities await further information to confirm the reported deaths.
