U.S. Border Patrol agents from El Centro Sector rescued six illegal aliens in distress in the Yuha Desert and Jacumba Wilderness region over the weekend, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection release.

The first incident occurred Saturday about 1:50 p.m., when El Centro Sector Communications (ELC Dispatch) was notified by Imperial County Sheriff’s Office communications of a 911 distress call from a man who had crossed the international boundary west of Calexico.
