FLORIDA KEYS, Fla. (WSVN) – A U.S. Coast Guard crew came to the rescue of two stranded Cuban fishermen off the Florida Keys.

Both fishermen were spotted a few miles south of the Florida Keys, Thursday.

The Coast Guard picked them up and transported them to the hospital. They were in stable condition and should be OK.

Once treated, the boaters will be sent back to Cuba.
