PACIFIC OCEAN - PACIFIC OCEAN (April 7, 2018) A suspected smuggler who jumped from his burning vessel, in background, is pulled aboard an interceptor boat from the Cyclone-class patrol coastal ship USS Zephyr (PC 8) by members of the U.S. Coast Guard and Navy in international waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean on April 7, 2018. The suspected smuggling vessel went ablaze as Coast Guard and Navy personnel approached to intercept it. All four suspected smugglers who abandoned the burning boat were rescued, the fire was extinguished and approximately 1,080 pounds of cocaine was removed from the hull before it was sunk as a hazard to navigation.
