This is the dramatic moment when three Moroccan teenagers are discovered trying to smuggle themselves to Spain after hiding on a passenger ferry to the Costa del Sol.

The stowaways were spotted on the aisle when the Transmediterranea ferry reached Malaga after a seven-hour journey from the North African enclave of Melilla in Spain.

Disembarkation was suspended and the police, including specialized divers, mobilized in case the young people aged 16 to 18 jumped or fell into the sea.

They were eventually detained aboard the ferry, called Ciudad Autonoma Melilla, and taken to a police station to be identified.

The drama happened just before 7 a.m. on Thursday. Their whereabouts today were unknown.

Footage showed police around the aisle on dry land while the migrants were sitting dangerously high on the structure high in the air.

The ferry on which they hid can carry 1,000 passengers and 330 cars.

Two years ago, three Moroccans and two Algerians were discovered hiding on top of the engines of a fast ferry that traveled the same route between Melilla and Malaga.

One of the men turned out to be a minor who had escaped days earlier from a children's center in the Spanish enclave.

Last week a British tourist explained how she became entangled in a police pursuit of migrants who walked off the beach at her holiday home near Tarifa and chased her garden with agents nearby.

One of them hid in her outside toilet before handcuffed and marched to the beach where they had left the stolen speedboat they had used to cross the Strait of Gibraltar.
