A SURVIVOR from a capsized migrant boat has been transferred to a hospital in Spain, alongside the bodies of a toddler and a woman.

On Saturday morning, a rescue boat operated by the Spanish aid group Proactiva Open Arms found the wreckage and the survivor, believed to be a woman from Cameroon.

Director of the Proactiva Open Arms said the wreckage was left behind after the three migrants refused to board a Libyan vessel alongside other fleeing migrants.

After the Open Arms vessel docked in Palma, Mallorca, the sole survivor will be transferred to receive medical treatment at a undisclosed hospital in Spain.

Uncertainty surrounds whether the sole survivor was related to the other two deceased bodies on board the wreckage.

The wreckage was at sea for two days and two nights before being rescued.
