U.S. Border Patrol agents in Eagle Pass on Tuesday pulled a family of three from the Rio Grande River. 

Two parents were pulled ashore before a 13-year-old boy was found underwater and unconsious.

Agents said he had been under water for more than a minute. 

The family from Honduras was taken to a hospital and released. They are now being processed at Eagle Pass's South Station.
