A dramatic Thanksgiving Day rescue of three immigrants on a Florida shore, after days in the ocean.
Nearly a dozen other Cubans didn't survive after their boat broke up in stormy waters. Tonya Flory has more. ((A Cuban man and woman washed ashore early yesterday morning in Key Biscayne, Florida clinging to an inner tube...after four days at sea. Badly sunburned and dehydrated...they managed to tell authorities that twelve others, including a five-year old boy, had also been aboard their aluminum boat that left Cuba last Sunday, then broke apart in bad weather and rough seas the next day. The Coast Guard found the little boy in the waters, but there are no other survivors. The three are recovering in the hospital.
