MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A sailboat with 80 Haitian migrants was intercepted by the U.S. Coast Guard 18 miles from Biscayne Bay.

The Coast Guard said the overcrowded boat was intercepted Sunday after they got a tip about it from a good Samaritan.

Haitians have been fleeing their country and trying to reach America, following last month’s 7.2 earthquake and the political turmoil from the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse. Team
