At least 28 Haitians drowned on Sunday off the coast of the Bahamas during a migrant smuggling operation, according to officials. According to the U.S. Embassy in Haiti, 28 Haitians drowned and 17 were rescued from the water. The tragedy happened as the Haitians were on a vessel being trafficked out of Haiti. “Please urge families and communities: Illegal migrant and smuggling operations are dangerous and frequently end in tragedy,” the U.S. Embassy wrote on their Twitter account. Two people were rescued alive on Sunday morning near Fish Hawk Cay near The Bahamas.
