Eight migrants have been rescued from a lorry near the border crossing in Ventimiglia. The migrants, who were from several African countries, had been having trouble breathing and were unable to open the truck from inside.
The migrants were hidden in the trailer of a Spanish lorry near the highway border crossing in Ventimiglia. They were suffering severe respiratory problems when they called the Italian police to ask for help. The migrants, who were from different African countries, had allegedly entered the lorry when it was parked in the square in the early morning and had hidden amid the pallets. At 11 a.m. they began to suffer severe respiratory difficulties and, as they could not open the doors from inside, one called a public rescue service from his cell phone.
