11 alleged illegal immigrants rescued from boat off Point Loma

Eight women and three men, all suspected illegal immigrants, were rescued in a boat adrift off San Diego's Point Loma after one of the women made a 911 emergency call.

One of the women is pregnant, authorities said.

The Coast Guard and Border Patrol responded to the call, which occurred at 2 a.m. Tuesday. The boat, whose motor had failed, was found three hours later about three miles from shore.
