A Guardia Civil patrol boat discovered the migrants at 4am and landed them in Aliacante port at 6am. 

The youngest child was taken to Alicante General hospital for a routine check-up, while an adult was treated for a knee injury. 

It appears the children are siblings and were accompanied by their mother. Of the 12 rescued nine are men and three female.
