Border Patrol Agents Rescue Distressed Woman in Desert

A nearly unconscious woman was rescued and transported to a local hospital when Border Patrol agents found her hiding in a hollowed out log along with five other individuals who had crossed into the United States illegally Thursday.

El Centro border sector agents had followed foot signs that afternoon that led them to the log and five illegal crossers. The 32-year-old Mexican woman appeared to be suffering from heat related injuries when agents called an ambulance to transport her to the El Centro Regional Medical Center to be evaluated.

The remaining four were male Mexican citizens found to indeed be illegally present in the United States and were taken to El Centro Border Patrol Station for processing.

In mid-August Breitbart reported on five illegal aliens who were rescued when Border Patrol agents answered a distress call. Three were found to be suffering from heat exhaustion and two others had injuries including fractures, from a fall.

National Border Patrol Union spokesman Gabe Pacheco told Breitbart News, “Compassion and professionalism, are demonstrated through the actions of these agents who carried out their duties in difficult conditions. Even though these individuals were recognized as criminals, they were recognized as human beings with basic human needs. They needed rescuing, medical aid, and understanding in their vulnerable predicament.”
