Five migrants, likely from Cuba, were picked up off the Hollywood coast
A boater reported five people aboard “a rustic vessel” off Hollywood beach
Five migrants, possibly from Cuba, were aboard “a rustic vessel” when
they were intercepted off the coast of Hollywood beach Tuesday morning,
according to a spokeswoman for the Coast Guard.

“A motor vessel had reported that there was a rustic vessel with five
persons on board,” Petty Officer Sabrina Laberdesque said.

The notification was made at about 10 a.m., she said.

“They were interdicted with no medical concerns and they are in Coast
Guard custody at this time,” Laberdesque said.

The Hollywood interception was not related to the search for two
possible migrants missing of the Miami Beach coast after three others
were found near 17th Street and Collins Avenue, Laberdesque said.
