Local news crews interviewed the doctors after their arduous journey.
“We set sail from San Diego two weeks ago. We had some basic rations with us, but we had to get away from the Obamacare. If I have to treat that many people in one day for peanut pay I would go insane in two days. It ain’t right, I didn’t go to Med. school all those years to be a low pay dog’s body. A group of us got this little rust bucket and jumped in it to escape America,” Dr. Barry Soto, recalled.
According to the surviving refugee doctors some of their colleagues did not make it during the harrowing journey and had to be thrown overboard for the sharks.
“It was either the sharks back home or in the sea. They chose the sea, bless their souls,” a brain surgeon from Los Angeles told rescuers.
Captain Fernando Guatirez, for the Guatemalan Lifeboat Service told reporters about the rescue: “We rescued the gringos they were floating in the sea in a boat that even our refugees would not venture on. Those crazy gringos were fleeing America. I had to pinch myself to believe it.”
