Border security surveillance cameras caught a video that El Centro Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gregory K. Bovino tweeted. Several migrants and human traffickers can be seen on the 30-foot border wall in the footage. A lady falls to the ground as one of the smugglers begins to drop her from the top of the wall.
The smugglers then lower the woman’s son from the wall with a rope, placing him in peril as well.
Border Patrol personnel from the El Centro Sector reacted to the scene and discovered the mother and her son on the ground near the base of the wall. The agents examined her and treated her seriously wounded ankle with emergency medical attention.
