El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents rescued an illegal alien abandoned by smugglers.

Wednesday morning at about 10:45 a.m. , agents patrolling the mountains west of Ocotillo , apprehended three illegal aliens. One of the arrested individuals told agents that a man had been left behind. Agents , with the assistance of a military Blackhawk helicopter , began retracing the smugglers route. A short time later the helicopter crew located the man in an area not accessible by vehicle and then transported a Border Patrol agent to assist the man. All four of the undocumented men were processed for removal.
