    At approximately 1 p.m., six illegal aliens from Guatemala illegally crossed into the United States east of the San Luis Port of Entry by scaling over the border wall. The 14-year-old, who was traveling with her mother, fell off the wall and sustained a serious back injury. The unaccompanied 17-year-old girl attempted to cross immediately afterward and fell off the wall resulting in an ankle injury.

    “The only legal and safe method of entry into the United States is through a designated Port of Entry,” said Yuma Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Carl Landrum. “People entering our country illegally, at places other than designated Ports of Entry, put themselves and their families in dangerous situations that could result in significant injury or even death.”

    Moments later, Yuma Station Border Patrol agents arrived on scene and requested assistance from local Emergency Medical Services. Additional Border Patrol agents certified as Emergency Medical Technicians arrived with a backboard and assisted EMS with stabilizing the two subjects. The remaining four illegal aliens were taken into custody.

    The 14-year-old was taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center where she was transferred to a Phoenix hospital via helicopter. The 17-year-old was treated for her injuries at Yuma Regional Medical Center and was later released.

    To alert potential border crossers to the dangers associated with illegally crossing into the United States, signage is placed in multiple locations along the border wall east of the San Luis Port of Entry.
