Samuel was a four-year-old boy who appeared dead on a beach in Barbate (Cádiz, Spain). He was the youngest brother of the six that made up the family. Her mother Veronique applied for visas on several occasions to treat Samuel for his heart problems in Europe, as well as the cancer that she suffered. After having it denied, Veronique and little Samuel were forced to risk their lives in a boat. Both died in a tragedy on the Strait route on January 14, 2017. Veronique’s body reached the Algerian coast.
