9 shipwrecked offspring of the Open Arms for health reasons . Migrants are visited by doctors of the Policlinic Lampedusa. On board the Spanish ship are 99 people.
«The situation on board gets more complicated every minute» writes in Tweet the nong and explains that together with «8 persons who urgently need help» also a ship came down from the ship companion. "Anyone who does not want to see the unsustainable situation on board – concludes the tweet – can not empathize with the pain of others."
The nine landed people arrived at the Favaloro pier, where the doctors provided warm blankets and blankets to visit the wharf. One of them was taken away in an ambulance. Two were hospitalized for tests: a man with arrhythmia and a woman with visual impairment .
Of the 9 persons, 8 had health problems, while the 9th woman accompanied her husband. The other 7 were brought by a minibus to the hotspot; One of them has scabies that are treated right in the center of Imbriacola, the other six have symptoms of depression and mental health problems.
The tension on board is growing. According to the founder of the Spanish NGO, Oscar Camps, a man was thrown into the water this morning . A Coast Guard patrol boat intervened to retrieve it. Already in recent days, some migrants have made a desperate attempt to land in the countryside.
In the meantime, perhaps last night, with the words of the Minister of Transport Danilo Toninelli, a turning point in the stalemate could have come: "We can bring it to Spain" . Therefore, after the Open Arms were "unbelievably rejected", writes the Minister on Facebook to be accompanied by the Italian Coast Guard in Spain, "we take another step forward here: we are available to join our Coast Guard in the Iberian port, which is shown to us all migrants who are aboard the Open Arms. "
" However, Spain – adds – first makes a step forward and immediately removes its flag from the ship Ong ».
