Ninety-five immigrants of sub-Saharan origin, including 16 women and 24 minors, have arrived during the night and at dawn to the south of Gran Canaria and Tenerife in two boats, as reported by sources Maritime Rescue and the 112 from the Canary Islands.
The first boat, a cayuco, was detected by a Civil Guard patrol boat last night when it was about to arrive, by its own means, at the San Miguel de Abona marina, in the south of Tenerife.
The Salvamar Alpheratz accompanied its 61 occupants (all men, 18 of them possibly minors), to the port of Los Cristianos, where they received the first assistance.
All were generally in good condition, except for a 25-year-old, who was referred to a hospital with moderate hypothermia and dehydration.
Hours later, around 4.45 am, the presence of a boat was noticed approaching the coast of Gran Canaria, some 18 kilometers away.
The Guardamar Talía rescued its 34 occupants (12 men, 16 women and six children) and transferred them to the Arguineguín dock, where they arrived after 7 a.m.
Health care is still in progress, but in 112 it is already anticipated that some pregnant women and some young children will be transferred to the hospital for observation.
