Jason Miele, a marine interdiction agent with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, retrieves evidence from a fishing boat that ran aground at the St. Andrews Club on May 2, loaded with 28 Haitians. Officers from Gulf Stream, Ocean Ridge, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and the county Sheriff's Office also responded. Efforts to free the boat that day failed and fuel leaked from it, prompting authorities to close Gulfstream Park for two days. Photos by Jerry Lower/The Coastal Star
By May 7 a recovery crew with floats and a backhoe was brought in to drain water from the boat and free it from the submerged rocks. On May 8 the crew pulled the boat ashore for demolition.
