According to reports, a 4-year-old Syrian girl's body washed up on a beach in the Aegean town of Cesme in Izmir province after a boat carrying 15 people sank on way to the Greek island of Chios.
14 of her fellow passengers were rescued by the Turkish coast guard.
The incident has been reported weeks after heart breaking image of lifeless body of three-year-old Aylan Kurdi wearing a red-shirt and blue shorts lying face down was found in the surf near the resort town of Bodrum in Turkey.
The picture went viral and sparked an international outcry over
the human cost of the on going migrant crisis.
Minor Aylan met with his fate when the boat in which his family was travelling in sank while trying to flee the war torn country.
