What happened that day?
On June 25, eleven Cubans on an old wooden boat tried to reach South Florida, as three law enforcement agencies chased them down at sea. In the air there was a chopper recording everything; showing the rest of the world what happened that day.
Before the immigrants could make it to land, they were stopped by a Coast Guard boat. As the Coast Guard tried to detain the immigrant’s boat with ropes, the Cubans cut the ropes off with machetes.
In one altercation the boats collided, and one of the Coast Guard officers accused Lazaro Mora Guiterrez of trying to assault one of the officers with his machete. Since this accusation was made against Guiterrez, he is the only refugee facing charges.
