YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say four migrants who had run out of food and water were found in the Yuma area.
U.S. Border Patrol officials say the Yuma Sector Operations Center received a 911 call Monday shortly after midnight about a group in distress.
Agents from stations in Yuma and Wellton were able to locate four migrants after they made their way to a rescue beacon.
The group appeared in relatively good health despite having spent several days in the desert.
They received water and other assistance before being processed for deportation.
