    Officers coordinated with the Red Cross in Golfito to give her assistance once they reached the pier. The others that were rescued did not need medical attention.

    All passengers of the panga are locals, they had left the center of Golfito bound for Cocoa Beach, but none of them were wearing lifejackets.
