Border Patrol agents are being credited with saving the life of a driver involved in a rollover accident in south Texas.
Breitbart reports that agents working out of the Falfurrias Border Patrol state in Brooks County were called to the scene of a rollover accident.
Agents arrived to find a driver near a burning, badly damaged car. The driver had serious injuries, including to his head and neck.
Before medics arrived, agents provided emergency assistance to the injured man.
“The Border Patrol is a valuable resource to our community,” Brooks County Sheriff-elect Benny Martinez told Breitbart Texas in an interview on Tuesday. “We are a very poor County financially. Their extra manpower and their saturation throughout the county can mean the difference between life and death to people in some of the remote areas of the county. Because of the number of agents working in our county and their distribution throughout the county, Border Patrol agents are often the first to respond in an event like this. Their training, expertise, equipment, and manpower are an invaluable asset to our community.”
