1 min read

Dozens of people made a perilous jump from the Proactiva Open Arms in an attempt to reach Sicily, in the largest known incident of its kind this year.

The Spanish NGO said 124 of the 273 people on the boat jumped into the water between Thursday and Friday in an attempt to swim to Palermo’s port.

They were rescued by the Italian coastguard and brought to safety after Proactiva’s crew waited 10 days for authorisation to disembark their passengers
