The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - News -

Au­thor­i­ties said a mi­grant wo­man was in­jured af­ter try­ing to climb a fence at the U.S.-Mex­ico bor­der with her two small chil­dren.

Bor­der Pa­trol agent Tekae Michael says the 26-year-old Gu­atemalan wo­man fell near the San Ysidro Port of En­try on Fri­day night and landed on pieces of re­bar that pierced one side of her body. Paramedics took her to a hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.

The San Diego UnionTri­bune re­ports the chil­dren, ages 3 and 5, were not hurt. The wo­man told agents she was not part of the mi­grant car­a­van that trav­eled from Cen­tral Amer­ica to Ti­juana.
