Border Patrol agents assisted two undocumented immigrants who were showing signs of severe dehydration on Monday.
At about 1 p.m. agents responded to a request by the Department of Public Safety for assistance with a 36-year-old man from Mexico who was in heat distress. The man said he had been without water for several days. The man was given water and an ambulance took him to a hospital for further care, according to a news release from Customs and Border Protection.
Several hours later agents responded to a 911 call to the same area along I-19 and found a 39-year-old Mexican man showing signs of dehydration. The man was aided at the scene and taken by an ambulance for treatment.
Following treatments, both Mexican nationals will be processed for immigration violations.
