Three stowaways were rescued from a ship’s rudder in the Canary Islands on Monday after having sailed from Nigeria 11 days earlier.

The three men were found on the Alithini II oil tanker at the Las Palmas port by Spain’s Salvamento Marítimo, which reported the men appearing to have symptoms of dehydration and hypothermia. Spanish news agency EFE reported that the men were seen by medics at the dock upon arrival and taken to the hospital shortly thereafter.

A photo shared by the agency shows the three men sitting on the massive ship’s rudder with their feet dangling over the water.
