Initially, there were only 68 people accounted for, leaving the coast guard to conduct a search and rescue mission for two missing migrants.
They were rescued from the sea shortly after, and then the coast guard transported a total of 70 migrants to the port of Mytilene on Lesvos. The migrants were eventually transferred to the migrant reception center in Moria, a hotspot that is said to be overcapacity by a couple of thousand people.
One pregnant woman and a small child were taken to the hospital as precautionary measures.
