A Disney cruise ship picked up four men found adrift on a small raft near Key West, Fla.
Disney Fantasy boarded the men — who are believed to be Cuban refugees — while sailing from Florida to Grand Cayman on Sunday, May 27.
The men, who were spotted signalling for help, were brought aboard the ship and provided with medical attention, food and water, according to a statement from Disney.
What will happen to the men once they arrive on Grand Cayman remains unclear. In an email to Cruise Critic, a spokesperson from Disney said, “We have notified the U.S. Coast Guard of this rescue, and we are working with the proper authorities to coordinate the debarkation of the group … It would be up to those authorities to determine next steps.”
