Motril port police had to alert the Coast Guards to the presence of a stowaway, perched precariously on the side of a docking ferry.
The incident took place on the 23rd when the 15-year-old lad was spotted wedged into a window/porthole aperture on the Motril-Nador Ferry as it docked.
One of the crew on the Coast-Guard launched climbed onto its roof to reach the lad and get him down when it drew up against the side of the ferry.
The minor was arrested for entering the country illegally and placed in the custody of the Policía Nacional.
