A migrant who was found with 20 fellow Pakistanis on board a boat floating off Corfu was taken to the hospital in a coma on Monday.

Police are investigating the incident but said that the other immigrants claimed the young man suffered serious head injuries when the boat hit rough waters.

The boat set sail from Preveza or Parga for Italy but the traffickers that were on board abandoned the vessel off Corfu, the immigrants said.
