Over a thousand migrants crossed into Macedonia after the Idomeni camp flooded over the weekend, in a desperate new attempt to get into Europe. The terrifying journey has already claimed the lives of three refugees including a pregnant woman whose bodies were pulled from the water near the Macedonia border. Macedonia stopped allowing migrants last week, forcing them to take extreme measures to escape the muddy, disease-ridden camp near the northern Greek village of Idomeni where some 14,000 refugees are stranded. Foreign volunteers were seen helping refugees cross the river and a rope was slung between the two banks to prevent people from being swept away.
