A helicopter unit saved the lives of two undocumented immigrants in the middle of the desert

Two Border Patrol agents rescued two men lost in the desert and out of water on Wednesday afternoon April 29, 2020 near Yuma, AZ .

Border Patrol received information concerning a 911 phone call regarding two subjects claiming to be in distress. Due to the caller being able to provide their Global Positioning Satellite Coordinates, an Air and Marine Operations AS350 crew from the Yuma Air Branch was able to make visual contact of two male subjects within a short time, while ground agents arrived moments later. 

Agents conducted an immigration and criminal history screening on the two subjects. The 27-year-old Guatemalan male and a 30-year-old Mexican male were medically screened and refused medical attention. Both subjects were expelled under Title 42 Authority. Both men were found to be in the United States illegally.
