47 Migrants Found Hidden Inside Bed Mattresses
THIS is the astonishing moment migrants were discovered hidden inside bed mattresses strapped to a van in a desperate bid to reach Europe. Shocking footage shows border officers slashing open plastic-wrapped beds strapped to a vehicle at a check-point near Melilla on the north African coast and Morocco. One man, dressed in a black and t-shirt with black jeans, is seen emerging looking dazed as filling spills from the mattress. A second man in a blue Reebok t-shirt then comes out of a second mattress before walking around the corner and sitting down.The two men, both believed to be sub-Saharan youths, were said to be in good health and did not require medical help. The driver of the vehicle allegedly fled into Morocco before authorities could make an arrest.
