Sting Operation: Illegal Aliens Attacked by Bees Rescued by U.S. Border Patrol Agents

A family of illegal aliens attacked by a swarm of bees was rescued by U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande City station and Rio Grande Valley Sectors in Texas, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) reports.

The border agents came upon the illegal family unit from El Salvador last Thursday just as a large swarm of bees attacked them, CBP reports:

“The mother, 13-year-old daughter and 10 year-old son had just been smuggled into the United States and immediately became overcome by bees. Responding agents utilized fire extinguishers to flush out the bees and extracted them to safety.”

One border agent who assisted in the rescue had to be hospitalized due to the bee sings he suffered while saving the illegal aliens:

“During the rescue efforts, an agent assigned to the RGV Mobile Response Team also sustained multiple bee stings. A Border Patrol Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) provided immediate medical attention and requested Emergency Medical Services. The family and agent were transported to a local hospital for further evaluation and treatment.”
