Helicopter evacuation near San Miguel

Posted: Updated:

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents arrested four men near San Miguel.

 They found the men in the Morena Mountains. One of the men, a 35-year-old Mexican national, started experiencing medical issues. Agents requested emergency medical services assistance and were met by an air ambulance, as well as Sells EMS and Arizona Department of Public Safety’s “Ranger 54”, a helicopter equipped for short-hall extractions.

The Ranger 54 crew stabilized and transported the man to a nearby landing zone, where he was transferred to an air ambulance and flown to a Tucson hospital.

The three uninjured men, also Mexican nationals, were processed for immigration violations, as will the 35-year-old man following his release from the hospital.
