Border Patrol agents responded to a migrant landing in Stock Island, Florida, officials said on Twitter.

The U.S. Coast Guard had initiated a search operation for 23 missing people, with the agency later saying it had rescued three of them. They were taken to a local hospital for symptoms of exhaustion and dehydration.

The Coast Guard was able to save several people, and a few swam to shore on their own.

Foul play does not appear to be a factor in any of the incidents.

Autopsy results are pending and we will update this story as more details are released.
