Desperate times call for desperate measures. And for one African immigrant, that meant getting creative when trying to cross the border in search of opportunity.
Via UK Dailymail reports:
This is the moment an illegal immigrant was busted trying to enter Spain despite his best efforts of pretending to be a car seat.
Vigilant police caught the 20-year-old man from Guinea attempting to sneak into the Spanish enclave of Melilla from Morocco over the Beni-Enzar crossing on Friday.
He was hidden inside a Renault 7′s passenger seat, with the co-driver sat on top of him.
The insides of the seat had been discarded, leaving only the frame which he slid into.
Guardia Civil officers had to help the man out of his hiding place, later describing his attempt to pass undetected as ‘unique and innovative’.
The two Moroccan men, aged 21 and 23, who allegedly tried to smuggle him across the border were arrested and will appear before a court accused of people smuggling later this week.
The man was also detained and appeared before a judge. He has now been expelled from the enclave.
We’d laugh but clearly this guy was really desperate to get into Spain. At least the officers who caught him gave him some points for creativity before booting him out of the country!
