A baby from El Salvador was rescued by U.S. Border Patrol agents on May 1, according to a recent report by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). Agents allegedly discovered the child among a group of thirteen illegal immigrants staying in a rural area.
When agents encountered the group of illegal immigrants near the Carrizo Springs Station Horse Patrol Unit, they noticed a 16-month-old baby. The child, who was with his undocumented mother, was allegedly having trouble breathing and became unresponsive.
Agents with the Del Rio Sector Border Patrol Search Trauma and Rescue (BORSTAR) quickly arrived on the scene and were able to save the baby’s life, according to the CBP. After administering medical aid, BORSTAR agents transported the child via helicopter to a San Antonio hospital.
