SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Powerful waves capsized a boat carrying about 20 illegal migrants near a popular surfing beach, killing at least five of them, as surfers desperately tried to help, witnesses and officials said Monday. At least 13 people aboard the makeshift 14-foot (4-meter) wooden boat survived the capsizing Sunday afternoon off the shores of Rincon, near the western tip of Puerto Rico.
