Volunteers for a humanitarian group that provides clothing to illegal immigrants crossing the border in the winter were rescued by Border Patrol agents, KPBS reports

The rescue last week came as volunteers were climbing mountains in Arizona to provide warm clothes to the illegal immigrants when the trouble began, KPBS wrote.

Their car wouldn’t start because the battery was dead.

“And we had no cell service on the phones,” Kathryn Ferguson, volunteer for Tucson Samaritans, told KPBS. “We spent about an hour walking up and down these hills trying to get cell service.”

After using their GPS to notify someone of the situation, two Border Patrol agents rescued the volunteers as the sun was setting and temperatures were dropping into the 20s.
