The Elian Saga: 10 years later
Elian Gonzalez, a fragile, angelic-looking 5 year-old Cuban boy was found clinging to an inner tube on Thanksgiving day of 1999 by fishermen in the Gulf Stream off Fort Lauderdale.
Released into the custody of relatives, the boy spent 149 days in Miami before he was seized by federal agents in a violent early-morning raid on April 22, 2000.
I've written a story about Elian's four months in Miami.
You can see it here along with some never-before-seen photos I shot while covering the Elian story. -
