Remains of a boat that was carrying migrants seen on the shoreline near the Aegean town of Ayvacik, Canakkale, Turkey, Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016.
A witness to the drowning of 37 people including babies and other young children off Turkey's coast described the horror and screams in the moments after the boat carrying the migrants slammed into rocks, saying it was like "somebody was being murdered."
Gulcan Durdu, who lives on the beach in the Aegean resort of Ayvacik, cried Sunday while recounting for The Associated Press the tragedy that happened at dawn the previous day.

She described being awakened by screaming and wailing after the boat struck rocks and capsized.
"I thought somebody was being murdered," Durdu told the AP.
