CBP Agents Assist in Rescue South of the Border

OCOTILLO, Calif. – Last Friday, Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Border Patrol and Air Interdiction Agents assisted Mexican officials in the rescue of two distressed men south of the U.S.-Mexico Border.


The incident occurred around 8:25 a.m., after California Highway Patrol dispatchers received a 911 distress call regarding two individuals that were lost in the desert near the border in Ocotillo.  Border Patrol agents operating a remote video surveillance system spotted one of the individuals near the border.
