A man and an eight year old child drowned while another child was missing in the sea off Nikopolis, Preveza, northwestern Greece on Wednesday, when a dinghy carrying 24 illegal migrants overturned in the water.
A Preveza port authority patrol boat spotted the distressed dinghy and picked up the migrants from the sea. 
Divers are currently searching the area to locate the missing child which, according to information, is the twin brother of the drowned 8-year-old.

The migrant trafficker, a 51 year-old Greek, has been arrested, while the illegal migrants will be sheltered in the old town hall of Zalogos.
