Border Patrol Agents Rescue 2 People from Drowning Near Mexico Border
By Steve Neavling
Border Patrol agents are known for tracking down undocumented immigrants at the border with Mexico.
But they also save a lot of lives.
On Tuesday, Border Patrol agents rescued two drowning men in the Rio Grande near the Texas and Mexico border, Fox News reports.
The two agents were alerted to the emergency by people on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande about 50 miles south west of McAllen and 175 miles southwest of Corpus Christi.
Agents Luis Gonzalez and Abel Flores pulled the men to safety and used a patrol boat to drop them back onto the Mexican side of the river.
“We are very proud of our agents [and] their actions which ultimately prevented the loss of human life,” said Manuel Padilla Jr., the chief Border Patrol agent in the Rio Grande sector.
