Suspected migrants rescued off Florida coast

Three bodies were recovered and seven suspected migrants were rescued off the Florida coast on Thursday after their vessel capsized, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

Search-and-rescue crews aboard a Coast Guard cutter and an HC-130 are looking for two people 75 miles northeast of West Palm Beach, the Coast Guard said in a statement.

It was not immediately clear what caused the 24-foot vessel to overturn. A Royal Netherlands Navy ship was en route to Key West, Fla. when it discovered the seven survivors atop the ship's hull.

No other details were immediately available.
