(CNS): The Cayman Islands Coast Guard rescued a group of migrants at sea last night after its Operations Rescue Coordination Centre (ORCC) was notified of a raft adrift some 20 nautical miles northeast of Grand Cayman. According to a social media post, the coastguard set off in one of its patrol vessels, found the raft and rescued all seven individuals.

The group was taken to the coastguard base, where they were handed over to Customs and Border Control. The CICG extended its thanks to the United States Coast Guard D7 Rescue Coordination Center and MV NFE Explorer for assisting in the rescue.

No further details about the group have yet been released by officials.

    Wonder if these people will sue Cayman for not having comfortable enough padding on the rescue boat during the bumpy rescue.

    I’m sure after seeing the political machinations, these poor people will want to be cast back to the mercy of the oceans. At least there’s some hope out there in the big blue yonder!
