Empty Cuban Raft Washes Ashore in Florida

Fears passengers are dead


If you had landed in Miami from Cuba aboard a 12-foot Styrofoam raft, would you then leave on the raft your lucky altar to Elegu√°, the god of Santeria that opens and closes all paths to mankind?

Would you also leave behind a Cuban national ID card that would have allowed you to stay in the United States without any question whatsoever under the U.S.' wet-foot, dry-foot policy?
