    A mayday call led to Coast Guard rescue, and repatriation, of 25 Haitians off Palm Be

    A mayday call led to Coast Guard rescue, and repatriation, of 25 Haitians off Palm Beach

    The mayday call may have saved the lives of 25 people aboard an overloaded 30-foot boat about 30 miles northeast of Jupiter.

    “Mayday, mayday ... we are about 15 miles from, from Palm Beach ... on board a boat ... we need assistance ... including women and children.”

    Some of Wednesday’s distress call is hard to decipher in an audio clip supplied by the U.S. Coast Guard on Friday. But the man in the call says the boat was pushed back either by wind or waves off Palm Beach and that the people on board needed help.

    “Thankfully the people aboard this vessel had a VHF radio in order to call for help, but there wasn’t any other lifesaving equipment on board,” said Coast Guard Senior Chief Petty Officer Jason Reynolds, a command duty officer with Sector Miami. “The risk of loss of life is too great to take to the seas in overloaded, unseaworthy vessels and no lifesaving gear,” he added in a statement.

    The rescue

    Coast Guard Station Lake Worth Inlet and Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations rescue crews were able to find the boat with its crew of 25 people still aboard Wednesday.

    The Station Lake Worth Inlet rescue crew determined that the vessel was overloaded but not in danger of sinking at the time. There were no reported medical concerns.

    Coast Guard Cutter William Flores took in 25 Haitian nationals: nine men, nine women and seven minors and repatriated them to Haiti.

    How many are repatriated?

    Since Oct. 1, 2020, Coast Guard crews have interdicted 181 Haitians compared to fiscal year 2020, which was Oct. 1, 2019, to Sept. 30, 2020, when crews interdicted 418 Haitians, according to Coast Guard figures.

    “Once aboard a Coast Guard cutter, migrants receive food, water, shelter and basic medical attention,” the Coast Guard said. Crews are equipped with personal protective equipment to minimize potential exposure to possible cases of COVID-19.

    “There were no migrants in these cases reported to have any COVID-19 related symptoms,” the Coast Guard said.

    Treat them ALL the same no matter where they came from and deport 100% of these foreign citizens.

    This is an invading army and it needs to stop!

    We do not want their women, their men, or their children.

    We do not want to pay for their pregnant women, their diseases or health issues or pay for their school, welfare and food stamps.

    We have our own homeless and citizens to take care of.

    This is disgusting.
