INSANE: Another African Migrant Found Crammed Behind Car Engine In Attempt To Enter Spain [Photo]
A desperate African migrant has been caught trying to smuggle himself into Spain while crammed into a tiny space behind a car’s engine, in the latest desperate ploy to enter the EU.
The asylum seeker, reportedly from the West African nation of Guinea, was found hidden beneath the bonnet of the car as it crossed from Morocco into the Spanish enclave of Ceuta – one of two North African territories owned by Madrid.
He was discovered by Guardia Civil border police, squeezed behind the engine block and radiator, lying in a foetal position.
He was reportedly in a bad state of health as a result of the baking temperatures and petrol fumes.
A second migrant, also from Guinea, was found hidden inside a tiny space behind one of the seats inside the car.
They were identified only by their initials, T.D and A.B.
Spanish police became suspicious after noticing that the driver of the car, who was not identified, appeared nervous.
The driver was arrested. The two migrants were taken to a local hospital suffering from cramp and dehydration. Doctors said they could have died had they been inside the confined spaces much longer.
