(Three rescued from mountains)…The emergency call was received late Monday night.
The caller reported he and two companions had become lost and could not walk any further. El Centro Border Patrol agents were able to determine a location, in the Mountains south of Ocotillo. The Border Patrol dispatched the Mountain Disrupt Unit and a BORSTAR team. The rescuers found the fire lit by the three lost men at around midnight. One man was treated for leg cramps and vomiting. All three were transported to the El Centro Sector Border Patrol Station. It was determined the three had entered the United States illegally. They were placed under arrest for processing.
