Two Cuban migrants apprehended at Florida airport after flying there in a motorized hang glider
A pair of Cuban migrants were apprehended Saturday at Key West International Airport in Florida after flying there in a motorized hang glider.
Key West, Florida is about 90 miles from the island of Cuba.
The two people landed at the airport around 10:30 a.m. No serious injuries were reported, and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said the two unnamed migrants were released to US Border Patrol custody.
Video captured by Key West resident and concierge service provider Christopher Ferrara – aka professional “DatGuy in Paradise” – showed the glider in the air en route to the airport.
