A boat load of Cuban immigrants has ran aground off Cayman Brac – the second time in a matter weeks.

On Saturday, 17 migrants, 16 men and one woman, were picked up in good health and are due to be transferred to Grand Cayman for processing.

A spokesman for the Immigration Department said: “Officials have intercepted 17 Cuban migrants – 16 males and one female – after their boat ran aground off Cayman Brac on Saturday night, 14 November. All appeared to be in good health.

“It is anticipated that the group will be transferred to Grand Cayman this week for processing.”

The 19 Cuban boaters who arrived last month are still being held on Grand Cayman after their vessel ran aground in a similar spot last month.
