One man has been found dead and two others have been arrested after authorities say they stowed away on a cargo ship that docked in South Carolina.
Multiple media outlets reported the men were found after the M/V MSC Debra arrived at the Port of Charleston on Saturday from the Dominican Republic.
Authorities say the men hide in a container and had cut a hole in the top to get air. Dockworkers unloading the ship reported seeing men climbing out of the container.
A joint team from Border Protection and the Coast Guard responded, capturing one man on the ship and the other from the water.
The third man was found in the container.
