Police find three stowaways in one single car
Police trying to clampdown on illegal trafficking gangs who hide immigrants in cars continue to be shocked by the extreme measures taken.
On one occasion, they found three Moroccans squeezed into concealed places in just one vehicle.
One was impossibly squashed into the instrument panel and the other two were in false compartments under the back seats.
“They had great difficulty in breathing and were so weak they couldn’t stand up,” said a spokesman for the Civil Guard.
Police say immigrants trying to get from Morocco to Spain are continuing to risk their lives and it is only a matter of time before a tragedy happens.
In the space of just four days, six stowaways were found in three separate cars as mafias continue to charge huge amounts for the promise of a new life away from Africa.
One of them was in the engine department and was suffering from heat exhaustion and near suffocation.
