In a humiliating security bumble, there were 28 Burmese refugees who came stuck and survived with coconuts, rainwater, and crabs when 8 of them were unintentionally identified by authorities who were clueless on the island.

The island was a famous camping spot where freshwater is accessible as well as foods like crabs and coconuts.

Last midnight, Immigration Minister Scott Morrison confirmed in a statement that 8 people along with 2 crew, were being accommodated in Phosphate Hill facility under his department’s care.

He also said that another individual was in the Christmas Island Hospital after recovering  minor injuries, now in a stable condition.

Australian Federal Police escorted 5 people to the Phosphate Hill facility after they were being found.

However, more 14 people had still not been in their custody.

According to Mr Morrison, 5 people had been seen at two sites on the island’s south-eastern part while another 9 people were still undiscovered.

“(They) are believed to be in heavy jungle approximately 50 minutes’ walk away from the nearest road. A search is underway for the individuals, coordinated by the AFP,” he said.

Counsel from the AFP points it is farfetched those yet to be located this nighttime. But the presence of AFP will stay within the search area. The search has been suspended because of the harsh conditions,  and will continue at the outset of Friday morning.

Minister Scott Morrison said from the detection resulted earlier, “No persons are believed to have been lost at sea.”

Gordon Thomson, Christmas Island Shire President, said that the Australia asylum seekers are currently living on the segregated Dolly Beach from the time when their boat sank last Monday.

The reason why the  boat sank was not identified but Dolly Beach is roughly 15km from the detention centre bounded by dense bushland, with restricted access of vehicles.

Eight of the asylum seekers were discovered by local authorities yesterday morning as they walked from the beach going to a main road, Mr Thomson said. Now they were taken into detention centre.

A number of them are believed to have been dehydrated.

Some police had gone back to the beach to search for the others.
