The Italian navy captured the moment an overcrowded refugee boat overturned off the coast of Libya which left several people dead.  The fishing vessel apparently tipped over on Wednesday after the refugees and migrants rushed to one side of the boat.

The vessel eventually fully overturned leaving all those on board stranded in the ocean.  

The Italian Navy rescued what survivors were left.
