MIAMI — Officials in Miami say one person is dead and two others are missing from a raft believed to be carrying Cuban migrants.
The Coast Guard reports a good Samaritan found one survivor aboard the homemade raft in Biscayne Bay on Monday.
Rescue crews responded to the scene and began searching for two other people in the water.
The man who survived was taken ashore by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. He told authorities three people had possibly drowned during the journey through the Florida Straits.
Anyone with information on the missing people or the rescued man is asked to call the Coast Guard Sector Miami at 305-535-4316.
