    California – Three people are dead and 27 others were taken to hospitals on Sunday after a smuggling boat capsized off the San Diego coast.

    The San Diego Fire Department said it pulled 25 people from the water Sunday morning.

    Three people died at the scene and 27 people were transported to hospitals with “varying degrees of injuries,” Homeland Security spokesman Jose Ysea said.
    Nearly 100 personnel were assigned to the rescue, including medics, lifeguards, firefighters, US Coast Guard and other local agencies.

    According to The San Diego Tribune, the group was riding in a panga, a smaller fishing boat often used by smugglers to transport illegal aliens across the border.

    Multiple helicopters and rescue water crafts here on scene. There are several first responder vehicles down by the water. I saw multiple ambulances driving away from the scene as I was coming in

    3 Migrants Dead, 27 Injured as Smuggler’s Boat Flips off California Coast

    3 Migrants Dead, 27 Injured as Smuggler’s Boat Flips off California Coast

    by BOB PRICE 2 May 2021

    Officials in San Diego, California, report at least three migrants died and as many as 27 were injured when a human smuggler’s overloaded vessel capsized off the coast.

    San Diego Fire Department (SDFD) officials tweeted images from the scene where a 40′ cabin cruiser broke apart on the rocky coastline after overturning in the surf. A multi-agency response led to the rescue of dozens of smuggled migrants and the recovery of at least three bodies.

    SDFD Lifeguard Services Lieutenant Rick Romero told reporters rescuers pulled seven people from the waves including the three migrants who died. The cold surf was running five to six feet on Sunday morning when the incident occurred, Fox News reported. The boat quickly broke apart as the waves smashed it into the rocky shore.

    Homeland Security Investigations spokesman Jose Ysea confirmed the deaths of three people and that 27 were transported to local hospitals for “varying degrees of injuries.”

    Agents responding to the failed human smuggling attempt included the SDFD, local lifeguards, the U.S. Coast Guard, Border Patrol, and other agencies, NPR
    reported.
    Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Jeff Stephenson told the reporters, “Every indication from our perspective is that this was a smuggling vessel.” He said the boat was “severely overcrowded.”

    The captain of the boat is under arrest under federal charges that appear to be related to human smuggling resulting in death to migrants.

    Stephenson said the
    San Diego Sector experienced a growing number of maritime smuggling apprehensions this year. He said the boat appeared to be attempting to blend in with commercial vessels before capsizing onto the rocky coastline.

    Officials have not yet released information on the migrants.

    On Saturday, San Diego Sector Border Patrol officials announced a stepped-up operation to attempt to disrupt maritime smuggling incidents. The effort includes assets from CBP’s Air and Marine Operations and Border Patrol.
