Moments from safety, migrants die trying to reach Europe

Dramatic footage emerged yesterday (May 5), filmed by a crew member, showing a Mediterranean Sea rescue of migrants on a sinking rubber boat desperately clambering up ropes and a ladder from the cargo ship Zeran that came to their aid on Sunday, in the sea between Libya and Sicily. Five bodies were recovered and were brought ashore yesterday along with the migrant survivors to the port in Catania, Sicily, Italy.
