Border Patrol officials said, in a written statement, that the person seen dropping the migrants from the top of the wall fled back into Mexico after he finished. He was not apprehended.
When agents arrived on the scene, they found a group of six Guatemalan nationals. Officials said the migrants were part of a family unit that included three children — a two-year-old, a seven-year-old, and a ten-year-old. The migrants surrendered to agents without incident.
Border Patrol officials noted that one of the children suffered a facial injury during the fall. An agent treated the injury at the scene.
