Authorities have discovered a 16-year-old Sudanese boy who fell off a truck and tried to cross the UK border this morning near Coles in northern France.
Attempts to cross the border into Britain by a young Sudanese man who fell off a lorry trying to enter the UK ended tragically.
On Tuesday morning, September 28, the teenager died in the town of Marc, a few kilometers from the coastal city of northern France. Judicial evidence told the AFP “the victim tried to get into the truck” was slow, but he fell to the ground.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, the young man’s heart stopped beating and he could not breathe, according to the “Sawad al-Shamal” newspaper.
The crash happened at around 5am, and according to judicial evidence, the dark environment prevented the driver from seeing the victim as he tried to board the truck.
Authorities have launched an investigation into the “involuntary manslaughter”. Early evidence indicates that the victim was a 16-year-old Sudanese youth.
The young man tried to get into the big trucks with a group of other immigrants in a nearby yard.
In northern France, hundreds of immigrants are waiting on the English Channel for the opportunity to enter the UK by boat or by lurking in lorries.
