Coast Guard: 9 Cuban Migrants Die, 18 Rescued off Florida

الأحد 1437/6/11 هـ الموافق 2016/03/20 م واس

Miami, Jumada II 10, 1437, Mar 19, 2016, SPA — Nine Cuban migrants died at sea and 18 others were rescued by a cruise ship after their 30-foot boat was found about 130 miles from the Florida coast, dpa quoted the U.S. Coast Guard as saying.
The migrants were severely dehydrated when they were found Friday and said they had been at sea 22 days. The bodies of those who didn’t make it were placed overboard, said Coast Guard Petty Officer Mark Barney. The survivors were in bad condition.
“They could barely walk off the vessel itself,” Barney said. “They were weak and they were shaking.”
The rescue by the Royal Caribbean ship took place about 130 miles west of Marco Island in southwest Florida. The migrants were in a “rustic” boat that was about 30-feet long, Barney said.
