ATHENS Wholesale Washington Nationals Jerseys , April 20 (Xinhua) -- A man, a woman and a toddler drowned on Monday and 90 other undocumented migrants and refugees were rescued as the vessel carrying them sank off the coast of Rhodes island in southeastern Aegean Sea, according to the latest official countdown by Greece's Coast Guard.

Among survivors, who were mainly Syrians and Ethiopians Cheap Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys , were 22 women and six children.

Initial estimates had put the number of people on board the wooden sailing boat to 200 passengers.

Following a marathon search and rescue operation, the local Coast Guard officials said that there were no other people missing.

Survivors who spoke to local media insisted that there were 100-150 people on board. They said that the boat had sailed from Turkey and that they had paid human traffickers 2,500 euros each.

In testimonies to Greek authorities survivors said that the captain of the sailing boat fled with a jet ski as the vessel was getting close to the rocks at a popular beach, the Regional Governor of Southern Aegean Sea Yorgos Chatzimarkos told media.

The vessel crashed on the rocks and sank within minutes and people struggled to reach safety with the aid of locals who rushed to their rescue.

Manolis Stavris Cheap Atlanta Braves Jerseys , the captain of a tug boat, who was among the first to reach the immigrants told Greek media how he witnessed the three victims perishing in the sea and described how he saved a baby.

Local authorities were put on alert to provide shelter to the migrants and refugees, as Greece's government reiterated calls to the EU partners to step up efforts to address the ongoing "humanitarian crisis" at its roots and offer more assistance to people who reach European shores desperate for a better life.

The incident at Rhodes occurred a day after hundreds of migrants and refugees lost their lives in a similar tragedy taking place off the coast of Italy's Lampedusa island and Italian Coast Guard rushed to the rescue of hundreds of undocumented immigrants on board two other vessels.

Greece and Italy are two key transit points for people entering Europe illegally to seek a better life for years. Thousands of people have lost their lives in the Mediterranean Sea in the process.

Due to the ongoing conflicts in the wider region, the number of undocumented migrants and refugees reaching Greece has tripled in the first three months of 2015 compared to that of last year Cheap Baltimore Orioles Jerseys , exceeding 10,000 people so far, Greece's Deputy Minister of Migration Tassia Christodoulopoulou said last week.

Greece estimated that should inflows continue at this rate the debt-laden country will receive 100,000 undocumented migrants and refugees this year.

Greece and other southern European countries are seeking more support from the EU to address the issue.

The Saints are scoreboard viewing. Perhaps not so much throughout the matches Cheap Boston Red Sox Jerseys , however certainly afterward.

New Orleans is actually fighting San Francisco for the No. TWO playoff seed inside the NFC. Therefore following the Saint鈥檚 22-17 win over Tennessee Sunday, gamers switched their own concentrate towards the 49ers鈥?match towards Arizona-the Cardinals received 22-19.

Right handle Zach Strief couldn鈥檛 wait for the chartered trip house through Nashville, Tenn., to property Sunday night time.

鈥淚 understand we all were awaiting cell support to come back soaring residence (Sunday night) to determine if Arizona kept on Cheap Chicago Cubs Jerseys , 鈥?Strief stated. 鈥淭here鈥檚 a few (scoreboard watching) due to the fact that two-seed would be essential. Getting been in that position prior to we all know exactly how useful it is. 鈥?p>

Both New Orleans as well as San Francisco are 10-3 as well as, with 3 matches to visit, the Saints would be the 2nd seed if they complete with a much better general report compared to the 49ers.

Therefore Saints trainer Sean Payton as well as his gamers will keep close track of what goes on with San Francisco during this residence stretch of the period.

鈥淚 might let you know we all don鈥檛 pay any focus on it, and that wouldn鈥檛 be accurate Cheap Chicago White Sox Jerseys , 鈥?Payton stated. 鈥淏ut it doesn鈥檛 truly start to take place until Dec. 鈥?p>

New Orleans has already clinched its third-straight playoff berth for just the 2nd time in business background. As well as below Payton鈥檚 leadership, the Saints is likely to make their own 4th postseason look during the past 6 periods for just the 2nd time in team background.

As well as for the 1st time inside franchise historical past, the Saints will have at least 10 victories inside 3 directly periods.

However the most recent bit of background isn鈥檛 always something Strief stated the group has to commemorate. The Saints are centered on larger targets.

鈥淯nfortunately you check out the historical past of this group as well as there鈥檚 maybe not the most-storied previous, 鈥?Strief stated. 鈥淪o I don鈥檛 believe always carrying out things that have never took place here prior to are trigger for instant special event.

鈥淚 believe that successful a second Super Bowl would be something that might be trigger for special event. Those kinds of points are in front of all of us and still sort of lie in front of all of us. We鈥檒l conserve the large festivities for the finish of the time of year. 鈥?p>

The Saints complete the season at Minnesota prior to hosting Atlanta as well as Carolina.

The No. TWO seed comes with a first-round bye Cheap Cincinnati Reds Jerseys , something the Saints understand from prior encounter is essential inside the playoffs.

That鈥檚 the reason why security Malcolm Jenkins stated there won鈥檛 be don鈥檛 a disappointment towards Minnesota.

鈥淚 believe everyone is concentrated, 鈥?Jenkins stated. 鈥淥ur objectives are right there in front of all of us. We want this earn. I believe it鈥檚 adequate motivation for all of us to go out as well as tackle business. 鈥?
