SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas — Authorities say six Cuban men have landed
on South Padre Island after drifting across the Gulf of Mexico because
their boat engine failed.

Cameron County Parks Chief Horacio Zamora says the men aged 28-65 years
old arrived Monday from Nueva Gerona, Cuba. He says they set off for
Mexico 21 days ago on a 14-foot wooden boat.

The men say the boat’s engine malfunctioned two days into the trip and
they tried to sail with a small shower curtain. They say storms in the
Gulf of Mexico blew them off course.

A beachgoer found the mean and alerted authorities.

Zamora says one man required medical assistance and the group had
nothing to eat or drink in days. The men were released to the U.S.
Border Patrol. Their conditions are unclear.
