A Greek Coast Guard vessel patrols at night, rescuing a boat of immigrants off the cost of Lesbos island. Every day hundreds of refugees, mainly from Syria and Afghanistan, are crossing in small overcrowded inflatable boats the six mile channel from the Turkish coast to the island of Lesbos in Greece. Many spend their life savings, over $1,000, to buy a space on these boats.
