    Cuban Refugees Rescued!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     EthanEckert is a 14-year-old aspiring photographer. He and his dad, Steve, were on a 5-day Caribbean cruise that was on its way back to Miami on Thursday when their ship rescued this rowboat of Cubans, Steve Eckert said. The U.S. Coast Guard picked them up shortly afterward, he said.

    While we were on the Norwegian Pearl for spring break, we spotted this raggedy boat filled with 24 Cuban refugees seeking to make it to the US. Take a look at the rescue effort and the make-shift boat and motor!
