#288 and #289.

In October 2013 a boat carrying more than 500 Eritrean and Somalian migrants sank off the coast at Lampedusa, Italy. More than 360 people drowned. One of them, a young woman, drowned while giving birth to her baby. They were labelled victim #288 and #289. Her name was later found to be Yohanna.
