ATHENS – A one-year-old boy has died after a boat carrying migrants to the Greek island of Lesbos from Turkey began sinking during the night, the ministry of shipping said Friday.
It said the child was on board a dinghy with 55 others, who said they were Syrians, when the vessel began to take on water as it approached the shore of Lesbos.
He was found unconscious by a coast guard patrol boat, and medics were unable to revive him.
