The EU remains paralyzed as to how to handle the migrant issue…meanwhile more deaths wash up on Greece’s shores.
The coast guard said Thursday that one of the survivors of the overnight sinking told rescuers he had let go of the body of his young son to save his remaining family members.
Ten people were rescued from the water, while a further four managed to swim to shore.
The sinking is the latest in a series of deadly shipwrecks as refugees and migrants attempt to cross from Turkey to nearby Greek islands.
More than 600,000 people have reached Greece so far this year.
