A teenager tries to swim to Spain using plastic bottles as flotation devices. Reports say the boy is about 13 or 14. He’s one of 1,500 children and nearly 8,000 total people to seek refuge in Ceuta, a Spanish enclave at the tip of Morocco. Spanish soldiers watch as the boy struggles to finish the swim. The boy then makes his way to the beach, casts off his floatation devices and runs to scale a wall. Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.
