Two Haitians arrived by boat in St Mary on Friday morning.

Reports were that  about 10 o'clock, fishermen from the community saw an unknown boat close to shore with its occupants apparently in distress, and went to render assistance.

The boat was pulled ashore and the police and a medical team were called.

The Haitians have since been taken to hospital for further examination.
