A Cuban rafter dies and six others are rescued off the coast of Florida

Six Cuban rafters were rescued by the Miami Sector Border Patrol after the boat with which they were trying to reach Florida capsized, reported this Friday Agent Walter N. Slosar. “During the search, a deceased person was found.”

The Coast Guard alerted about the accident of the boat and requested support to intensify the search, in addition to noting that the Border Patrol informed them of the arrest of six people on Thursday. “All six were transported to a local hospital with signs of dehydration and hyperthermia.”

Slosar announced on his social networks that “the search and rescue efforts are still continuing,” with what could be more rafters who left the island in a boat powered by a vehicle engine.

This Wednesday the Coast Guard confirmed the rescue of two Cubans who left the Island on March 22 on a surfboard to which they adapted a motor. “They are in good health,” the entity said on Twitter.

This rescue occurred days after the story of Elian Lopez Cabrera. This diving instructor left the Island on a windsurf board hoping to receive medical treatment, since he underwent surgery for colon cancer.

On the other hand, the US Coast Guard returned to the island this Friday on the ship william trump 14 rafters who were intercepted in three separate events off the coast of Key West.

Since last October, more than 1,000 Cubans have been intercepted in US waters and more than 30 repatriation operations have been carried out, according to Coast Guard reports.

Last February, the United States returned 29 Cubans after the crew of the coast guard ship Margaret Norvell intercepted two vessels, the federal agency reported in a statement.
