A Border Patrol agent rescued a man who attempted to commit suicide by jumping into the icy Detroit River from the McArthur Bridge on Belle Isle in Detroit.

The agent was patrolling when they saw what appeared to be a couple in need of help, WWJ reports. 

The agent saw the man push his wife aside before trying to climb the railing of the bridge.

The Border Patrol agent quickly grabbed the man, preventing him from jumping.

The man was pulled to safety.

“The courage of the men and women of the law enforcement profession was evident in every aspect of protecting our community Monday,” said Chief Patrol Agent Douglas Harrison, in statement. “The keen eye of the off duty Park Ranger noticing something out of place and quick response by the Border Patrol made for the best possible outcome in this situation.”

“Hazardous terrain can add great risk to the inherent dangers of traversing remote areas,” Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak said in a statement. “Thanks to the keen eye of our Del Rio Sector marine agents, and with the coordination and support of our foreign partners, this man’s story did not end in greater tragedy.”

When Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent John DeJohn was driving home from a fishing trip in Corpus Christi, Texas, he spotted an SUV that had crashed in a field.

DeJohn, of HSI Houston, sprinted to the vehicle and discovered it was on fire.

The special agent found a young girl screaming for help, pinned underneath the SUV. Her mouth was bleeding and she appeared to have a broken leg.

DeJohn and others who stopped lifted the vehicle and rescued the child.

As the fire was spreading, a passerby cut the seatbelt of the unconscious driver, and the group pushed the car back on its wheels to rescue the bleeding woman.

“We commend Special Agent DeJohn for the heroic action taken to save others on a moment’s notice,” Mark Dawson, Special Agent in Charge of HSI Houston, said in a press release from ICE. “This is a testament to HSI special agents everywhere who are willing put their lives in jeopardy every day to help others.”

DeJohn said, “You don’t ever want to be a hero, because that means someone’s life is in peril.”

Border Patrol agents saved two men attempting to commit suicide in separate incidents in Detroit on Wednesday.

The Detroit News reports that a Border Patrol agent on patrol spotted a man stumbling in the street at about 7 p.m.

“The agent stopped to assist him and noticed he was covered in blood,” authorities said Thursday. “The individual stated he just tried to commit suicide and stabbed himself.”

Instead of waiting for an ambulance, agents rushed the man to the hospital.

At 10:30 p.m. that night, separate Border Patrol agents responded to a possible suicidal man near the Detroit River. The man jumped into the river but was rescued when the agents threw bags with ropes so the man could reach shore.

“Each of us in this world has a purpose,” Chief Patrol Agent Douglas Harrison said in a statement Thursday. “I am proud that the purpose for these Border Patrol agents last night was to save the lives of two people who needed help.”

Sister of Kidnapping, Murder Suspect Files Claim Against FBI for Killing Brother

The sister of a man killed in the Idaho wilderness after authorities said he abducted a 16-year-old girl and killer her relatives is suing the FBI for $20 million, saying her brother never got a fair trial, the Associated Press reports. 

The attorney of Lori DiMaggio Robinson filed a claim with the FBI Thursday and plans to soon file suit.

“We need a lot more information,” attorney C. Keith Gree said. “We need to know why the officers felt like they were being targeted and to find out if they truly were in harm’s way.”

James DiMaggio, 40, was killed in August 2013 after triggering a massive manhunt.

He was shot six times after the FBI said he fired rifle shots as a rescue attempt was underway.

“The FBI agents’ unprivileged use of force therefore constitutes an assault and battery against DiMaggio, leading to DiMaggio’s wrongful death under Idaho law,” attorneys stated in the claim. “None of the agents present sought to intervene to prevent the excessive force, though able.”

A Border Patrol agent is recovering from traumatic injuries after his ATV plunged over a ledge near the Rio Grande in Sanderson, Texas.

Agents from the Office of Air and Marine boarded a helicopter and rescued the agent soon after the crash.

“The safety of our officers and agents is critical. These men and women put their lives on the line every day to keep our communities safe. We are glad to say that our air crew was able to successfully extract this individual from an extremely remote location to safety,” Supervisory Air Interdiction Agent Clay Tippit said in a press release.

The agent was treated and stabilized and then sent to a hospital via helicopter.

“We work closely with other agencies in the area especially Border Patrol. When an agent, or any individual, is injured we do everything we can to ensure an outcome such as this. Everyone worked together and got this injured agent the care that he needed. Because of that, I can gladly say that the agent has been released from the hospital and is doing well,” said Tippit.
