Beached Boat Found at Crystal Cove State Park; Illegal Immigrants May or May Not Have Been Aboard
Around 7 a.m. on Tuesday morning, a call came into the police from a woman reporting she'd seen a small fishing boat come ashore, with nearly a dozen people sitting inside. Upon striking sand, the boat emptied, with the people discarding life jackets and some clothes, then running in various directions.
Immigration officials received word of a second boat seen motoring near where the first boat beached. The boats were pangas, which are open-hulled fishing boats.
