CBP Investigating Man’s Death -One Month After Fall From Border Wall


A Mexican national who broke his leg in a fall from the border wall in Brownsville a little more than a month ago – has died.

CBP officials say Border Patrol agents responding to the area on June 16th found the man lying on the ground with a broken leg. He was taken to Valley Regional Medical Center in Brownsville where he tested positive for COVID-19, and was then transferred to Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen, where he underwent surgery for injuries suffered in the fall.

A CBP news release says the man never regained consciousness following the surgeries, and last Friday he was removed from life support. CBP and DHS officials are continuing to investigate.
