MEXICAN IMMIGRANT FAMILY RESCUED FROM RIO GRANDE RIVER

U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued several undocumented immigrants stranded in the Rio Grande River.

On May 13, agents from the Del Rio Station in Texas conducting line watch and marine operations along the Rio Grande River, rescued several individuals stranded on an island. The migrants were attempting to enter the United States in an inflated child’s pool.

As the marine agents approached the location they observed a family unit stranded on a small outcrop in the middle of the river. The agents quickly maneuvered their vessel and pulled the family from the island and brought them safely to dry land.

The family consisted of one adult and three children. No injuries were sustained during the incident
