Cuban refugees

Sheriff’s Office helped out this morning around 6:30 a.m. after a group of Cuban refugees were found by a passing boater on Cook Island, offshore of Big Pine Key. The group of 24 men and one woman were ferried from the offshore island to Dolphin Marina on Little Torch Key where they were turned over to Customs and Border Protection. They were all in good condition.

In the picture is Deputy Jon Riggs taking small groups ashore in his Sheriff’s Office vessel.
