This is not a movie scene. This actually happened about few hours ago when coastal guards got an inaudible distress call via satellite phone from drowning refugees fleeing war zones into . Their boat capsized and they all clung to floaters and inflatable boats . It is estimated that about 2,951 refugees have died or are reported missing in the mediterranean trying to flee war zones into Europe via Spain and italy. An estimated 241,263 arrival by sea has been recorded in 2016 alone!
