The boat had been carrying eight migrants from the Turkish coastal resort of Bodrum to the Greek island of Kos when it capsized.
At least 18 have drowned after a boat headed for Greece sank off the Turkish coast.
Local fishermen heard the desperate boat passengers screaming and rescued them.
An elderly refugee throws candy in the air shortly after she and other crossed the Aegean sea on a dinghy from the Turkish coast to the Greek island of Lesbos, Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2015. The boat included people from different countries including Syria, Iraq and Pakistan.
Those rescued were taken to the hospital in Bodrum, many in serious condition.
Around 800-thousand migrants and refugees have reached Greece from Turkey so far this year.
The European Summit that ended late on Thursday night in Brussels “acknowledged the key role Turkey plays in the reduction of refugee flows”, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said following the conclusion of the meeting, AMNA reported.
A record 500,000 refugees fleeing from the four-year civil war in Syria have travelled through Turkey.
Despite the winter conditions and rougher seas, the exodus has continued, albeit at a slower pace.
The vast majority of migrants who arrived this year – close to 1 million in total – arrived on Greek Aegean islands from Turkey.
