Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro Station successfully rescued an illegal alien on Tuesday from the dangerous currents of the All American Canal. The incident occurred ten miles west of Calexico, when a Border Patrol agent encountered an illegal alien attempting to cross the All American Canal. The 20-year-old man was only half way across the canal when he began to panic and yelled for help as he struggled to stay above water. The agent immediately responded and deployed a rescue throw bag. The man reached the bag before being pulled under from dangerous water currents. Agents pulled the man out of canal to safety. The man was determined to be a Mexican citizen illegally present in the United States. The illegal alien was transported to the El Centro Border Patrol station for processing and further evaluation.
