US Customs and Border Protection

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - A post from US Border Patrol Yuma Sector says agents rescued a migrant from drowning in a canal.

A migrant was seen attempting to cross the border from Mexico into the U.S. through the All-American Canal on Monday.

The canal's currents overpowered the migrant and agents used a rescue disc to pull him to the side.

The migrant was processed after agents determined he did not need medical attention.
