Adult Migrant Found Dead on Beach Who Media Reported to be 16-Years-Old


The Sudanese migrant found dead on a beach in Calais after trying to reach the UK who the media reported was 16-years-old is actually 28-years-old according to travel documents seen by French authorities.

After their small dinghy capsized while trying to reach the UK, the migrant’s friend told rescuers that Abdulfatah Hamdallah was 16 and this became the main detail of the story when it was subsequently reported on by the media.

Now that all appears to have been a fabrication.

One of the shovels the migrants used as oars to steer the boat punctured the flimsy vessel and the two fell into the sea, according to investigators.
