U.S. Border Patrol agents saved the lives of seven illegal aliens, including a juvenile, over the weekend and Monday.
According to a Border Patrol press release, the juvenile was rescued early Monday morning when agents found him in the brush near Mission, Texas.
Agents said he was nearly unconscious so they called an ambulance and began to perform first aid.
The boy lost consciousness and went into convulsions, but agents were able to pull him out of the brush and wait until an ambulance arrived.
The juvenile was transported to Mission Regional Hospital, where he was treated for a heat-related illness and released.
Additionally, a husband and wife, who are nationals of Mexico, were rescued Sunday at the cemetery in Abram, Texas.
Agents found the couple after receiving a call from a concerned citizen regarding a woman in distress at the cemetery.
Agents found the man, who was complaining of cramps to his legs, and his wife, who was unresponsive, the release stated.
Agents called an ambulance and the two were transported to Mission Regional Hospital.
The woman was admitted to the hospital for heat stroke and the man for dehydration.
Another man, who is a national of El Salvador, was rescued Saturday near Sarita, Texas.
He was rescued after he became distressed in the brush and activated a rescue beacon, the release stated.
In a rescue that happened early Friday morning near Mission, agents patrolling the Rio Grande by boat saved the lives of two men, who were struggling to swim across the river to the United States.
Another man was pulled from the river at around the same time by agents near Penitas, Texas. The man was part of a group of three men swimming to Mexico, the release stated.
Two of the men made it safely to the Mexican side, however the third man began to struggle and requested assistance, at which time the agents helped him onto the boat.
