Explain to me briefly the following article:

She was 18 years old and was born in Gambia: she drowned, during the night, in Maltese waters, after the iron boat she was traveling on sank. The body was identified by her cousins – aged 19 and 18 – who were traveling with her. Two girls who are now in shock.

The boat sank 33 miles southwest of Lampedusa. The coast guard of the island rescued 45 migrants and recovered the girl’s body. The Coast Guard mobilized to save the migrants were the military of the patrol boat Cp274, who then brought them to the dock of Lampedusa. There are no missing persons.-

The prosecutor on duty in Agrigento ordered the autopsy which will be carried out in the next few hours in the mortuary of the cemetery of Cala Pisana in Lampedusa, where the body was taken. The examination will serve to confirm that the eighteen-year-old died from drowning. The 45 survivors, all rescued from the water, are being interviewed by the police of the mobile team of the Agrigento police department.+
