Hundreds of migrants and asylum seekers landed on the Italian island of Lampedusa over the weekend.
One man was so exhausted when he arrived, he fell into the water and barely made the swim to the shore.
Emergency workers pulled him to safety and loaded him to an ambulance.
So far, this year, some 44,000 people crossed the Central Mediterranean to Europe. Roughly half of those migrants disembark on Lampedusa, which is closer to North African than the mainland.
Many of the migrants do not survive the journey. More than 1,100 people were reported dead or missing in the Central Mediterranean this year according to the United Nations. (AP)
