The 29-year-old man who is thought to be from Guinea, was discovered tied inside the bumper of the car after a machine detected his heart beating on the border between Morocco and the Spanish enclave of Melilla.

He was discovered when agents from Spain's Guardia Civil removed the front bumper of the car and found him tied to the inside. 

"He was in a very serious condition," a Guardia Civil spokesman told news agency Atlas. 

"He was having trouble breathing" and was taken straight to hospital, officials confirmed. 

Migrants are resorting to increasingly drastic measures to sneak into Spain.

In September, agents from Spain's Guardia Civil discovered two men attempting to enter Spain in a car's hidden compartments.
 
Upon inspecting the vehicle, in Ceuta, police discovered two migrants; one hidden in a secret compartment inside the engine casing and another in a compartment "practically under the vehicle's back seat" according to a statement released by the Civil Guard.
