People smugglers took the foam out of the passenger seat before helping the 20-year-old Guinean get inside its shell.
Two Moroccans then tried to cross into Spain’s north African enclave of Melilla – with one driving and the other sitting in the passenger seat on top of the hidden immigrant.
Police only realised there was a third man inside the Moroccan-plated Renault 7 when they started examining the seat – and touched flesh instead of foam.
The two Moroccans are being held in custody and the Guinean has been sent to a detention centre.
A police spokesman described the attempt to fool them as “novel.”
