Cayuco carrying 68 arrives at Los Cristianos

A cayuco with 68 immigrants on board arrived around 4am this morning at Los Cristianos, being towed to port by lifeboats and escorted by Guardia Civil. The craft was detected by the early warning system Sive, Sistema Integral de Vigilancia Exterior, around 3am near Las Galletas. Among the occupants seem to have been several minors (different reports say between 7 and 16), though this will need to be verified by bone tests to determine their real age. All appeared to be in good health except for one who was transferred to the El Mojón hospital with symptoms of hypothermia.  Canarias24Horas
