Boat offers no escape

A Massachusetts man's bid to avoid federal prosecution in connection with an investigation into the 2014 hacking of a Boston hospital's computer network ended Tuesday when the engine to his small boat conked out somewhere off the coast of Cuba, officials said.

The couple was rescued when a passing Disney cruise ship responded to the call.
