Palm Beach, Fla. (AP) – U.S. officials say they stopped a boat off the Atlantic coast carrying 23 Haitian migrants who were being smuggled into Florida by two Bahamian men.

The U.S. Coast Guard said 15 Haitian male migrants and 8 Haitian female migrants were detained in a Friday operation.

One of the women reportedly was taken separately in an emergency boat to receive medical care.

The migrants and suspected smugglers were traveling in a 25-foot boat and authorities say “migrant condition and weather quickly deteriorated.” The two suspected smugglers were transferred to the custody of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for potential prosecution.
