    Firefighters cut a man free from barbed wire on the border fence. Then he jumped back into Mexico.

    Firefighters in Nogales, Arizona, rescue a man from concertina wire at the border.
    Nogales Fire Department

    Called out on Thursday night to help a man who had become entangled in the barbed wire at the top of the border fence, Nogales firefighters propped two ladders against the barrier.

    They cut away the wire and freed the man, said Gerry Castro, EMS division chief at the Nogales Fire Department.

    “And then he jumped back into Mexico,” Castro said.

    Cpl. Oscar Mesta of the Nogales Police Department said in an email that the man was first discovered by a U.S. Border Patrol agent and an NPD officer working on Operation Stonegarden, a federal program that pays local police for border-related patrols.

    Police dispatch records show that the incident was first reported at 9:05 p.m.

    NFD received a call requesting assistance at 9:11 p.m., Castro said, and responded to an area just west of the Mariposa Port of Entry.

    One firefighter climbed a ladder to support the man in place while another used bolt cutters to remove the wire that had ensnared him.

    Castro added that NFD was not able to collect additional information about the man or further assess his injuries since he refused medical attention and left the scene after he was freed.

    But he said that the man, who is seen in photos wearing sneakers, jeans and a camouflage suit, was “cut up and tangled” in the wire, and that one of the firefighters had observed blood on the man’s hands, apparently from holding onto the barbed concertina wire.

    The unidentified man is at least the second person to sustain injuries related to the wire that was hung on the local border fence by Army personnel last November.


    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
