A Disney cruise liner came to the aid of a group of migrants in the Mediterranean after they fired three flares.

The Disney Magic liner with around 2,000 tourists on board, helped rescue around 10 men in the Mediterranean after spotting their flares, reported the Sun website

It was travelling from Sicily to Palma, Majorca, when it spotted the boat around 70 miles south of Sardinia.

Disney chiefs alerted the Italian coastguard who came to their rescue after four hours.

The men also waved their t-shirts in the air like white flags. “It was very lucky we spotted them,” one passenger said.

Disney chiefs were praised by passengers for their handling of the incident. “We were all so relieved it was a happy ending.”
