A panga boat carrying several illegal immigrants washed ashore in northern Pacific Beach early Wednesday and at least some of those passengers were injured, one fatally.

The boat was found at the foot of Law Street some time before 2:30 a.m., according to San Diego police Sgt. Tom Wood.

One man died at the scene, KGTV reported from the scene.

Medics took nine other people to various hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, a San Diego fire-rescue dispatcher said.
