Nigerian Migrant Woman Who Gave Birth At Sea Says Nigeria Is The Worst Place To Live

On May 2nd, hundreds of immigrants were rescued from overcrowded boats crossing the Mediterranean into Italy. A heavily pregnant Nigerian woman was amongst the migrants and later gave birth to a baby girl who has since been named Francesca Marina.

The woman, 24 year old Stephanie Samuel (above) told Reuters that she risked the dangerous voyage to Europe because she wanted a better life for her child.
"I didn't expect the baby, you know, but she just like, she just came. I just wanted to leave Libya. Italy is better than Libya and Nigeria is the worst. God decides, not me... but I believe she will have a more good future in Europe." Stephanie said.
