Antonio Cordova is a Cuban immigrant whose parents came to the United States from Cuba in 1980 during the Mariel boat lifts with him and his sister on a raft made from tires, wood, and cardboard.
Halfway to Florida, they were caught in a storm and his father fell to the side and never came back up. His mother dove after him and ordered Antonio to stay on the boat and watch his sister, who was feverish. Antonio feared that he would never see his mother again either, but she eventually returned alone.
