A fisherman rescued 60 refugees, including 20 children and infants, 11 nautical miles off the coast of the northeastern Greek city of Alexandroupolis.
The fisherman said while he was fishing he heard cries for help and spotted the dinghy with the refugees.

He took them on his boat and transferred them safely to Alexandroupolis port where they were received by the local authorities.

The refugees will be identified and afterwards will be sent to the local refugees camp where they will be hosted until the necessary documents for their travel are issued.
