Banksy’s Ship: "One dead on board, other burned migrants" Mediterranean: "I am 2 hours from Lampedusa, we arrive"

Refugee rescue ship Louise Michel calls for help: “We have one dead on board and others have burns all over their bodies.” In a tweet the crew of the boat financed by the English street artist Banksy explains that they have 219 people on board off the coast of Lampedusa, some in critical health conditions and for this reason they ask for “immediate assistance”.

“The MVLouiseMichel is in an emergency situation and the Italian and European institutions must intervene to rescue the more than 200 people on board and the crew. Save them, they are two hours from Lampedusa” writes on Twitter Mediterranea Saving Humans, addressing the message to the Coast Guard and to the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Paola De Micheli.

Then Mediterranea SH, at 12.40 pm, announced in another tweet: “We are leaving Augusta for a mission to rescue the civil patrol boat @MVLouiseMichel, which at 3:24 this night declared a state of emergency”.

Meanwhile, in Lampedusa, the mayor says that the situation on the island has collapsed after another three landings which took place within a few hours, for about one hundred new arrivals of migrants. “The men of the Police and Coast Guard are exhausted, they work day and night and there are not enough numbers to face this emergency. In Lampedusa in two days there have been about 40 landings, the reception center is again full. “denounces the mayor Totò Martello.
