MIAMI (AP) — A Disney cruise ship picked up a group of migrant rafters off the Florida Keys.

Ensign Pete Bermont says the U.S. Guard retrieved five people from the Disney Wonder Tuesday afternoon. Their nationality wasn't immediately known.

Disney spokeswoman Rebecca Peddie says the Wonder's crew spotted the single raft about 42 miles south of Key West. The rafters were given food, water and medical attention. No deaths or serious injuries were reported.
