ATHENS — Greek authorities say a migrant has died after hiding in the undercarriage of a bus waiting to be loaded onto a ferry heading from western Greece to Italy.

The Coast Guard says the man was found unconscious late April 21. Firefighters freed him, but he was pronounced dead at a health center.

The death comes two days after a wooden yacht carrying 90 migrants ran aground off the Greek island of Rhodes. Three people, including a young child, drowned.

On April 22, Greek authorities picked up about 160 people in boats in the eastern Aegean Sea, in five separate incidents.

Tens of thousands of migrants from the Middle East, Africa and Asia cross from Turkey into Greece each year, with most trying to head from there to other European countries.
