4 migrants found in desert near Yuma without water, food

YUMA, Ariz. — Authorities say four migrants who had run out of food and water were found in the Yuma area.

U.S. Border Patrol officials say the Yuma Sector Operations Center received a 911 call Monday shortly after midnight about a group in distress.

Agents from stations in Yuma and Wellton were able to locate four migrants after they made their way to a rescue beacon.

The group appeared in relatively good health despite having spent several days in the desert.

They received water and other assistance before being processed for deportation.
