A few days before the aforementioned incident, another migrant woman had suffered a significant ankle injury after being lowered from the top of a 30-foot border wall in the El Centro Sector.
Smugglers also used a rope to lower the woman’s son from the wall, endangering him as well. The mother’s seriously wounded ankle was treated right away by the agents.
