Border Patrol rescued illegal aliens after they became trapped in a storm drain in Texas this week, according to authorities.
On Monday, agents in Laredo Sector were alerted by police about a “situation” near the World Trade Bridge, which connects Laredo, Texas, with Nuevo Laredo in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.
“When agents arrived, they noticed several migrants stuck inside a storm drain, near the sewer system, with no means of escape,” Customs and Border Protection explained in a statement.
“With the assistance of Laredo Fire Department, they were able to extract several people from the drain.”
Two men were pulled out of the drain and taken to Border Patrol’s Laredo North Station for processing.
They were identified as citizens of Guatemala and Honduras, both in the country illegally.
Migrants and smugglers frequently use storm drains to evade capture during illegal entries into the U.S.
Last month, border agents in El Paso Sector thwarted three such incursions involving 27 illegal aliens in one week.
