EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — A man was seriously injured Saturday after he fell from the border fence in Sunland Park, N.M.
The man was flown to University Medical Center via Medevac, according to a tweet from the Sunland Park Fire Department. There’s no word yet on the victim’s age, his condition or if he was a migrant.
This is the second time this week that SPFD responded to a call of a person falling from the fence. On Thursday, a 39-year-old woman from Mexico suffered serious head injuries falling over a 14-foot stretch of border wall in what officials describe as an illegal crossing attempt.
