Two migrants rescued from Ceuta border fence

TWO sub-Saharan migrants who were left hanging hooked on the wire fence which separates Morocco and Spanish autonomous city Ceuta have been rescued by the fire brigade.
Police explained in a statement that the events took place yesterday (Wednesday, July 15) when the two migrants tried to cross over the 6-metre high double fence at two different points of the border.
Both immigrants became hooked by their clothes and were unable to descend and despite Guardia Civil officers present at the scene, they could not help them due to a lack of equipment.
One of the migrants had to be taken to the University Hospital of the city to be treated for minor cuts in several parts of his body.
The second climber was also rescued but was returned directly to Morocco, as he had not reached the second fence of the border.
