California – Three people are dead and 27 others were taken to hospitals on Sunday after a smuggling boat capsized off the San Diego coast.

The San Diego Fire Department said it pulled 25 people from the water Sunday morning.

Three people died at the scene and 27 people were transported to hospitals with “varying degrees of injuries,” Homeland Security spokesman Jose Ysea said.
