Seven asylum seekers have reportedly drowned while trying to reach the Greek island of Lesvos from Turkey’s shores after their boat sank while carrying more than 60 people.

According to reports, Greece’s coast guard was alerted at around 7 a.m. on Tuesday morning to a boat in distress off the island’s coast and arrived in time to save 57 passengers.

Seven people had already drowned before help could reach them, however, with reports saying that two of the victims were children.
