Agents catch truckload of undocumented immigrants

SAN DIEGO – An attempt to sneak into the country via shrink-wrap failed Wednesday when border agents had to rescue one woman who was unable to breathe.

Agents found 19 people hiding inside one of three air conditioning ventilation units on a semi-tractor trailer around 9 a.m. at the Otay Mesa Port of Entry, according to Customs and Border Protection officials.

Trained Emergency Medical Technicians and San Diego Fire-Rescue immediately provided medical attention to the woman hyperventilating in the truck.

She was transported to a Chula Vista Hospital for further care, according to officials.

The remaining 18 were taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the incident remains under investigation.
