FALFURRIAS–Border Patrol Agents rescued a six month pregnant woman early this morning after she called 911 and said she was lost and in distress near Falfurrias.
The 18-year-old woman, a citizen of Mexico, requested medical attention and was transported to Christus Spohn Hospital Kleberg in Kingsville for evaluation. After being medically cleared she will be processed for return to Mexico.
Agents were able to find the missing woman because they obtained GPS coordinates from the call and it helped guide the agents to the woman.
So far this year, agents from the Rio Grande Valley Sector have rescued 10 illegal immigrants who became distressed while attempting to illegally enter the U.S. or while circumventing a traffic checkpoint on foot.
