Border Patrol agents rescued a 65-year-old man who was found along a treacherous stretch of the Rio Grande River.

Agents conducting a routine patrol on Feb. 27 discovered the man in severe pain on the Mexican bank of the river about 50 miles northwest of Del Rio, Texas, according to a press release.

Mexican officials were unable to reach the man, so a CBP Air and Marine Operations helicopter and Border Patrol Search Trauma and Rescue agents scooped up the man and transported him to Mexican authorities.

“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.”
