Drowned Syrian Boy, 'There Was No Other Hope'

"Seeing no other options to help get her brother Abdullah's family out of Syria and to safety, Teema Kurdi sent him money to get them onto a smuggler's boat that would take them to Greece. ""We actually would say we encouraged them to go, because his brother made it, and there was no other hope,"" he told NPR's Rachel Martin in an emotional interview. ""We don't see the war ending in Syria; life in Turkey is hopeless.""" #FullNewsAudioAvailable #NPR
