A boat with approximately 80 Haitian migrants was intercepted Sunday about 18 miles east off Biscayne Bay, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
According to a tweet, the call of a migrant boat came in from a "good Sam" and the Coast Guard and other agencies are investigating further.
It is the latest migrant boat intercepted from Haiti since the massive earthquake devastated the island-nation and killed over 2,000 people on Aug. 14, just weeks after the island's president, Jovenel Moïse, was assassinated.
