February 13, 2020

Three women are dead from apparent hypothermia after getting lost in the mountains as they tried to cross the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego earlier this week, Border Patrol officials said Tuesday. Harsh weather has hindered the recovery of their bodies.

Around 7:30 p.m. PT Monday, Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitke tweeted that rescue efforts were underway in the Laguna Mountains about 35 miles from the Mexican border for five people "after they got lost trying to cross the border illegally." Members of the group were suffering from hypothermia and called 911, Heitke said.
