The Italian Coast Guard released video on December 7 showing the rescue a day earlier of a group of migrants found drifting in an inflatable boat in the Mediterranean.

A total of 473 migrants were rescued in five separate operations on December 6, the coast guard reported.

In this video, a member of the rescue team with a camera boards the inflatable boat as it is guided to safety. “We are Italians. We come to help you,” he says. The video shows the migrants, including a baby, being helped up onto the rescue ship.

The rescues come just days after the Italian coast guard <a href="*/stories/150842" target="_blank">reported</a> the discovery of more than 1,000 people and 16 dead bodies on December 4 and 5.
