Del Rio Sector agents rescued five Honduran migrants from the swiftly moving waters of the Rio Grande River that separates Texas from Mexico. Agents said two were toddlers who were put in grave danger.

Eagle Pass Station agents patrolling the river on a boat came upon a group of migrants who were attempting to wade across the Rio Grande River not far from a legal port of entry. The agents approached the migrants and found three adults — two were holding young children, according to Del Rio Sector Border Patrol officials.

The marine-unit agents transported the three adults and two children to the river bank where BORSTAR agents provided medical treatment and evaluation to the migrants.
