Two Cuban migrants soared into Florida on a motorized hang glider Saturday, according to local authorities. The two men touched down at the Key West Airport at around 10:30 a.m., according to reports from the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. Miraculously, the pair made a smooth landing on the tiny island and sustained no serious injuries on their journey. “Cuban migrants arrive in all manner, typically in makeshift homemade boats,” Adam Linhardt, a spokesperson for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC News, adding, “This is not a typical event, but it's not completely unusual.” The two men were handed over to custody of the U.S. Border Patrol upon arrival.
