Border Patrol Rescues Camper After Emergency Call
TUCSON, Ariz. – Pima County Dispatch relayed a call to Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents early Tuesday from a camper who said he was lost in the desert south of Three Points, Arizona.
Just after midnight on Dec. 6, after obtaining GPS coordinates on the caller, a Tucson Station agent already in the area dropped what he was doing and located the camper. The agent conducted a quick assessment of the camper’s condition before transporting him to a main road for pick up by a friend.
In addition to enforcing immigration laws, Border Patrol agents often respond to requests for assistance from local law enforcement to enhance public safety in communities across southern Arizona.
