“On June 26, 2021, a Border Patrol Agent (BPA) was observing traffic on a rural road near Boulevard, CA, when he noticed a red Honda travel southbound and then return northbound a few minutes later with additional occupants. The BPA conducted a vehicle stop and found four undocumented migrants inside the vehicle, including one in the trunk. As the occupants got out of the vehicle, the BPA noticed that one of the migrants in the back seat, a female later determined to be a Mexican citizen, was unresponsive. The BPA immediately requested medical assistance. Approximately 7 minutes later, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL-Fire) Emergency Medical Services arrived on scene. The woman was then transported to a local area hospital via helicopter, where she was later pronounced deceased.”
