In what authorities described as a “multi-casualty accident, a “panga” home-made boat made landfall near the 16100 block of Pacific Coast Highway. The dozen were treated by Huntington Beach paramedics. Two of them were arrested by federal authorities.

The Associated Press reported that nine Chinese men, a Chinese woman and two Mexican men are in federal custody. The boat approached the shore by traveling through Anaheim Bay in Seal Beach, which is U.S. Navy property.
