Turkey coastguard rescue 40 migrants stranded on island
Aerial footage showed a group of 40 refugees trapped on the island off the coast of the western province if Balikesir.
Turkey's coastguard dispatched two helicopters and one boat to retrieve the migrants - which included women and children - after a rescue call from the party.
Thousands of migrants have crossed from Turkey to Greece hoping to reach Europe.
The Turkish coast guard intercepted more than 23,500 people this year, although these numbers are below previous years following tighter security.
