Sunland Park Fire

SUNLAND PARK, New Mexico - Firefighters in Sunland Park rescued two people after falling from the border wall on Monday.

First responders used a basket to lift one of the migrants over a stopped train near the wall. That person suffered from a serious lower leg injury.

Officials coordinated with Union Pacific to keep the train stopped during the rescue. Border Patrol agents also helped in the rescue.

Just hours later, another person fell off the border wall near Highway 9.
