Almost 60 dead in the wreck of a patera that went to the Canary Islands

-

At least 57 immigrants of several nationalities have died after shipwreck this Wednesday in Atlantic waters at the height of Nuadibú (470 kilometers north of Nouakchott), in Mauritania, according to police sources in this city.

Another 74 occupants of that same patera managed to get out alive after swimming until they reached the coast of Mauritania, and it was they who gave details of the wreck.

The boat had departed last Thursday from the Gambia's coast with destination to the Canary Islands, carrying on board a total of 150 occupants of different nationalities.

The boat, which apparently was always traveling near the coast, hit a reef and overturned; Once in the water, only those who knew how to swim could reach the coast and save their lives.

After finding the survivors, the Mauritanian authorities took them to a safe place in Nuadibú, where they were provided with care, food, clothing and blankets.

There is no hope of finding new survivors, according to sources, but the search continues to try to find the corpses, which in some cases have been thrown ashore by the waves.

The latter will be buried tonight in a place outside the city.
