Three illegals needed to be rescued after getting stuck on the top of a section of President Trump’s new border wall in San Diego.
The new fence design is made of bollard and 30 feet tall.
Per WashingtonExaminer, falls from the wall do happen, said Supervisory Agent Jeffrey R. Stephenson, who said agents then rush them to medical attention.
“The falls have led to numerous serious injuries including broken legs, broken ankles, skull fractures, brain bleeds, broken scapula, fractured vertebrae and appendicitis,” he said.
Aaron Heitke, acting chief patrol agent in the San Diego sector said “These three were very fortunate to not have fallen from the top of the wall, which could have resulted in serious injury or death.”
10News reports three people were rescued from atop the border wall in San Diego Sunday evening, Border Patrol said Tuesday.
According to a news release, agents spotted three people perched on top of the wall near Otay Mesa around midnight January 5.
A man and two women reportedly tried to enter the U.S. illegally by climbing the wall amid dense fog. “The trio became stuck at the top of the wet, slippery wall after smugglers abandoned them,” the agency said.
San Diego Fire-Rescue also responded and used a ladder truck to rescue the individuals.
Border Patrol says all three people, a 36-year-old man, 20-year-old woman and 18-year-old woman, were Mexican Nationals.
All three were taken to a Border Patrol station for processing.
