On a rescue boat in the Aegean Sea, a Syrian mother with her two dead children is comforted by a member of Migrant Offshore Aid Station who rescued her and 22 others fleeing the civil war. Their small boat capsized after the Turkish smuggler driving it at high speed lost control. Three children drowned in the tragedy. The smuggler was sentenced to 120 years in jail by a Greek court.
