As reported by the British News organizations BBC, authorities successfully rescued 227 migrants yesterday after receiving reports of a boat accident resulting in the tragic death of 30 individuals.
According to Coast Guard officials, these migrants were en route to the islands of Lanzarote and Gran Canaria in small boats. In response to the emergency, the necessary measures were taken, and a significant number of rescued individuals have been transported to hospitals, where their condition is reported to be stable.
