VIDEO AVAILABLE- Amver Participating Cruise Ship Saves 5 Migrants

The Amver participating cruise ship Carnival Glory rescued five Cuban migrants from a make shift raft approximately 50 miles southeast of Key West, Fla. on Friday, September 30, 2016.

U.S. Coast Guard rescue personnel in Key West received notification from the Panamanian flagged vessel they had encountered a make shift raft taking on water and started rescue operations. The Carnival Glory crew threw a rope and safely embarked the five Cubans, giving them a medical check up before transferring them to U.S. Coast Guard officials.
