Child dies in migrant ship sinking off Lesbos: Greek police
A child has died and another was hospitalised after a makeshift boat packed with dozens of migrants capsized off the coast of Lesbos, Greek port police said.
Two children were found "unconscious" after the vessel overturned at around 08:30 am local time (0630 GMT) in the Aegean Sea, a spokeswoman told AFP. One of them, a small boy, could not be revived, while the other was taken to hospital.
A further "46 people are safe" following the accident, the official said.
