YUMA, Ariz. – A pair of Guatemalan teens sustained severe injuries after they fell off the 18-foot border wall while attempting to illegally enter the United States Friday.

At approximately 1 p.m., six illegal aliens from Guatemala illegally crossed into the United States east of the San Luis Port of Entry by scaling over the border wall. The 14-year-old, who was traveling with her mother, fell off the wall and sustained a serious back injury. The unaccompanied 17-year-old girl attempted to cross immediately afterward and fell off the wall resulting in an ankle injury.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The only legal and safe method of entry into the United States is through a designated Port of Entry,” said Yuma Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Carl Landrum. “People entering our country illegally, at places other than designated Ports of Entry, put themselves and their families in dangerous situations that could result in significant injury or even death.”

Moments later, Yuma Station Border Patrol agents arrived on scene and requested assistance from local Emergency Medical Services. Additional Border Patrol agents certified as Emergency Medical Technicians arrived with a backboard and assisted EMS with stabilizing the two subjects. The remaining four illegal aliens were taken into custody.

The 14-year-old was taken to Yuma Regional Medical Center where she was transferred to a Phoenix hospital via helicopter. The 17-year-old was treated for her injuries at Yuma Regional Medical Center and was later released.

    It is obvious these invading idiots don’t care about their children, our laws, nor about the burden they are to others. I am sick of paying those in Congress too as they are doing nothing to help Americans. The proof is in the homeless, children going hungry, and our vets here just to name a few. I nor any other taxpayer ever signed on to supporting illegals, invaders nor repeat criminals with our hard earned taxes. Time to stop the craziness.

    It’s their own dam fault. They knowingly and willingly put their own lives in danger, it’s not up to us to take care of them. We unfortunately have to foot the bill tho

      They knew the risk; they took the risk. OWN IT, LOSERS. Not one thin dime from U.S. citizens for your stupidity.

    Wish she had fallen onto the Mexico side so we wouldn’t have to pay for her medical treatment!

    Am I the only person that wonders why there isn’t concertina wire permanently installed at the top of the wall like at federal prisons?
