Last week a six-year-old Cuban resident almost reached American shores onboard an alleged smuggler's jet boat.

Unfortunately, the little boy drowned last Thursday morning when the 33-foot Florida registered jet boat capsized during a high-speed chase between the smuggler and the U.S. Coast Guard.

His mom and dad did survive the dash to America last week. They were released to the custody of some of their Florida relatives over the weekend, just in time for their son's funeral.
