Haitians Aboard Wooden Vessel Rescued by US Coast Guard

On January 10 Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations noticed a vessel near the northeast of Anguilla Cay, Bahamas.

Upon further investigation, officials noticed it was a wooden vessel with what was determined containing 175 Haitians aboard.

Coast Guard Cutter Paul Clark and other law enforcement officers were called to the scene to investigate and process all individuals properly.

Chief Warrant Officer James Kinney stated, “It is extremely dangerous to navigate the Florida Straits in an unseaworthy vessel, especially off the Florida Keys where the water is extra treacherous with shoals and reefs,” he continued. “Thanks to the quick coordination among so many different agencies, no lives were lost during this interdiction.”
