Another bystander shouts: “He is stupid. He wants to die.”

Some of the people attempted to save the drowning man by throwing life rings into the water, however the man either had trouble swimming, didn’t notice them or didn’t want to.

No one attempted to jump into the water to pull him to safety.

The immigrant was later identified as 22 year old Pateh Sabally from Gambia. The report indicates that the tragedy happened on Sunday.

Last year more than 181 000 illegal immigrants arrived by boat to Italy, most of which were from Sub Saharan Africa – a whopping 18% more than did arrive in 2015.
