A Carnival Cruise Line ship has rescued two dozen people from a sinking boat 37 miles off the Florida coast

MIAMI, Fla. — A Carnival Cruise Line ship rescued two dozen people, including two children, from a sinking boat 37 miles (about 60 kilometers) off the Florida coast, the cruise line reported Saturday.

The Miami Herald said the passengers were later transferred to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The cruise ship was in international waters 37 miles off the coast of Palm Beach when it came upon the struggling boat, whose passengers were of various nationalities, cruise line officials said. They were evaluated and quarantined from the crew.

Carnival Cruise Lines aren’t yet in service and had no guests on board when it came to the smaller boat’s aid.
