This footage shows the moment a Moroccan stowaway tried to sneak his way into Spain by hiding in the turbine of a ferry engine.

On Wednesday, Spanish police intercepted the man who was trying to make his way into the country illegally.

The video shows the 20-year-old man dressed in a wetsuit, draped over the turbine, holding a bag with his belongings.

Police said the ferry had left Tangier and the man was arrested around 11 am.

Difficult words: stowaway (somebody who hides on a vehicle), intercept (to stop somebody on a way), draped (situated).
