After spotting their boat on Thursday, the US Coast Guard says it rescued ten Cuban migrants on the sinking vessel off the Florida coast.

Air Station Miami Commander Captain Shawn Koch said had the aircrew not spotted the migrants who had no life jackets or safety equipment, they would not have survived the night.

On Saturday, the Coast Guard Cutter William Trump repatriated six of the Cubans.

Officials took four others to Florida for medical treatment.

  1. Is there not a lesson to be learned from this escapade? who is it to blame for this condition? I think its just political ideologies; one who sticks to a dead past, in a world of today with fast moving dynamics, and some actors are quite contended to wallow in their pipe dreams. Can that happen in St. Lucia? easily!!!
    Martinique may say no entry to you, because of the many undesirables that have gone over committing crime. Barbados may do the same to you. Don’t think of putting any further burden on St. Vincent. When hunger and poverty begins to bite, there are no limits to the actions man would take; not that I wish, but the time for a similar action is not really very far off. It is just the times we are living in. (Put your faith in God, He only is your help)
