A patera boat carrying 37 immigrants from Africa landed on the Isla of Alborán Sunday afternoon where one of the seven pregnant women gave birth.

Shortly after, the boat was intercepted by the Maritime Guardia Civil and all passengers were taken to Motril port on board a customs ship.

One of the Guardia held the baby while the mother recovered.

Both mother and child, who were taken to Santa Ana Hospital, are in a healthy condition.

  1. GREAT work that Spanish authorities were able to help save the mother and child. But are Spanish authorities RESPONSIBLE for emergency care for those attempting to entire Spain IL legally? If SO, tell them to bring MONEY! – has Spain got some NEW APARTMENTS for you to buy!
