Agents rescue injured border crosser SW of Tucson

Border agents used a helicopter to rescue a injured illegal immigrant
who fell in the Baboquivari Mountains southwest of Tucson. The
woman's husband called for help Friday after he said his wife was
unable to get up after a fall.

The couple from Guatemala had crossed the border illegally and had
been crossing the rough desert terrain for about two days when she
fell about 45 feet, breaking her leg, according to a news release.

The Border Patrol's Search Trauma and Rescue team found the pair
halfway up Baboquivari Peak. Agents deployed from a Blackhawk
helicopter, lifting the woman to safety in a rescue basket. The
agency posted a video of the rescue on Youtube.

The woman was hospitalized.

least 40 heavily armed men, confirmed this morning the Attorney
General Carlos Manuel Salas .

He confirmed that the town had about seven members of the judicial
police "who sought to regroup" and respond, but were overwhelmed by
the superior numbers of offenders.

Attorney Chambers said the Army will issue its own report on the
reasons, for which there was no military presence in the town, when
in close proximity is a detachment at the military base of El Zorrillo.

He said both the army and federal police, must be proactive in the
care and prevention of violence in the Sierra, where armed groups are
active, traveling in several vehicles, use heavy weapons, which ranks
as organized crime .

He located the rise of violence in the mountainous area as a turning
point, "a struggle to fill the gaps" and the quarrels, debts and
revenge between families, who often face some recurrence, especially
late in the year, and to that extent can deploy a prevention strategy
supported by federal forces.

elements to cope. No waiting recurring actions to address them are
preventable, "the prosecutor insisted.
