BIG PINE KEY

Cuban migrants come ashore

Four Cuban men who came ashore were treated by firefighters after being found hitchhiking about 4 a.m. Thursday on Big Pine Key, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Enrique Dominguez-Sanchez, 44, Enrique Domingo-Perez, 25, Dany Toledo-Gonzalez, 24, and Yoan Torres-Quinones, 24, had landed earlier at Bahia Honda State Park in a 15-foot wooden boat, FHP said.

Marathon Fire Rescue firefighters reportedly found them walking north on U.S. 1 at Mile Marker 32.

Federal agents responded from Miami and took the men into custody, reports say.
