Migrant boat rescued 82 miles south of Gran Canaria.

Salvamento Marítimo has rescued a woman who was traveling in a boat heading to the Canary Islands.

The boat was sighted this yesterday morning by a fishing boat about 82 miles south of Gran Canaria. He then gave the notice to the Maritime Rescue Control Center in Las Palmas, which mobilised a rescue boat.

After four hours of navigation, they located the boat and found that the Moroccan patrol boat was already next to the boat.

The boat and woman were returned to Morroco.
