Amver participating cruise ship saves 2 Cubans

The U.S. Coast Guard was notified by the Amver participating cruise ship Carnival Victory that the ship's crew had rescued two Cuban migrants from a rustic raft taking on water approximately 53 miles southwest of Key West, Fla., on Sunday, May 25, 2014.

The crew of the Carnival Victory located the raft and launched a motor life boat to embark the duo without incident or injury. The ship's crew checked the survivors for injury and notified Coast Guard officials who requested the Coast Guard Cutter Margaret Norvell meet the cruise ship to transfer the migrants.

Here is video of the rescue:
