"400 migrants may have died in the Mediterranean"

The beginning of the video speaks about "pregnant women, newborn babies, and barefoot immigrants" with corresponding images. The piece highlights the misery of these people, giving a sensationalistic view. The video talks, or wants to talk about the possible death of 400 people, but simply reports an anecdote of the trip without actually going deep into the whys. We cannot confuse the act of describing a reality, in this case a harsh reality, with staying on the surface using sensationalism and paternalism.
