Coast Guard, US Customs rescue 71 Haitian migrants stranded on islands near Puerto Rico – The Washington Post
Customs spokesman Jeffrey Quinones said Saturday that a large number of the Haitians were dehydrated and had bruises and scratches. They were taken to hospitals for treatment.
The rescue comes a week after 67 migrants from Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic were found in the same cluster of islands. One Haitian woman was found dead.
