Italy’s coastguard rescues drowning migrants off Lampedusa

The Italian coastguard has released a dramatic video of their rescue at sea of a group of migrants off the coast of Sicily.

The authorities were notified after a plane spotted six people struggling in the water near the island of Lampedusa, and 11 others on board a small boat.

The footage released by the coastguard shows one rescuer saving two migrants at the same time.

The coastguard reports all 17 migrants were brought to safety.
