Daring migrant tries to enter Spain on ferry propeller

Police footage has emerged of a man attempting to enter Spain on a ferry propeller.

This video shows the daring Algerian migrant barefoot and shirtless while precariously positioned on the ferry propeller with his small plastic bag of belongings.


The ship had come from the Moroccan port of Tangiers and the 48 year old Algerian man was arrested on suspicion of attempting to enter the country illegally.


Police believe that he intended to swim to shore once the boat neared the Spanish coast.


Tarifa is a port in southern Spain that is a popular point of entry for illegal migrants.
