Cubans at Sea for 16 Days Rescued After Vessel Capsizes Off Florida Coast

According to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, eight Cubans who had been at sea for more than 16 days were rescued after a capsized temporary vessel off the coast of St. Lucie County, Florida. In a Facebook post, the sheriff’s office said there were reports of a ship in distress off Waveland Beach on Sunday night. An image of a helicopter captured the scene, showing the boat swaying in big waves before capsizing. Six men and two pregnant women were rescued and taken to the hospital, all in stable condition. “Federal authorities will decide whether further immigration measures will be taken,” the sheriff’s office said.
