A group of 24 migrants from Cuba has landed on an island in Miami-Dade
County.

Multiple news outlets report that the group of migrants landed on Sands
Key around noon Tuesday after leaving Cuba on Saturday.

The group included eight women and at least one child. One person was
injured in the journey and was taken to the hospital.

Officials from Homeland Security and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission arrived on the island and took the group to the
Dania Beach Border Patrol Station.

Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Lazaro Guzman says officials are trying
to determine if some of the migrants were part of a smuggling operation.

Officials say they couldn’t find the boat that brought them ashore.
