Six Cubans land in Texas after drifting across Gulf of Mexico

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 09/03/2014 - 03:42
By Amanda Orr HOUSTON (Reuters) - Six men who identified themselves as Cubans have landed on a Texas coastal island after the engine failed on their boat, causing it to drift for more than two weeks across the Gulf of Mexico before reaching shore, authorities said on Tuesday. The men told authorities they were trying to land in Cancun, Mexico about 260 miles (420 km) away and to the west from their launch point in Nueva Gerona, Cuba, but landed on South Padre Island in south Texas, about 950 miles away (1,500 km). "They were elated when they found out they were in the U.S.," said Horacio Zamora, head of the Cameron County, Texas parks department. The men told authorities that they had been adrift since Aug. 15, when their boat's engine failed.

FILE - In this Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014, file photo, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie walks along a boardwalk after a town hall meeting in Ocean City, N.J. Christie is heading to Mexico officially for a trade mission typical of any governor.

He is one of several potential White House hopefuls burnishing their foreign policy credentials for any possible general election matchup against Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton, a former secretary of state. (AP Photo/Mel Evans, File)NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is heading to Mexico on Wednesday, officially on a trade mission for his state.
