Agents make another rescue

(Border Patrol agents rescue another person)….El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents discovered the man Monday afternoon.

Officials say he was in apparent Heat Distress. Emergency Medical Services was called. They rendered emergency medical attention, then transferred the man to El Centro Regional Medical Center. After being released from the hospital, the agents determined the 49-year-old man from Mexico, who had entered the Country illegally. He was taken to the El Centro station for processing and further evaluation. The El Centro agents rescued nine individuals in the desert last month. They say it serves as a reminder that high temperatures in the summer, combined with the remote and rugged desert environment can be extremely dangerous.
