Three Saint Lucians were among seven people rescued by the fast-response U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Donald Horsley on Monday, May 6, Acting Police Commissioner Milton Desir has confirmed.
Desir said the four other people had no form of identification but preliminary investigations suggest they are from Venezuela.
Reports are that the seven individuals were on a small vessel — registered in Vieux Fort, Saint Lucia — when the Coast Guard rescued them.
Desir said the Coast Guard arrived in Saint Lucia with the seven individuals after 10 a.m. on Monday and handed them over to local authorities, who are investigating the incident.
