SAN DIEGO –Two groups of migrants crossed illegally from Mexico into the United States Thursday, cutting through a border fence at Border Field State Park in San Diego, but officials said none got away.

Video posted to YouTube showed dozens of people squeezing through the breah in the fence around 4 p.m., then running along Imperial Beach past a lone Border Patrol agent in a vehicle, which blared its siren in an attempt to stop the migrants.

CBP reported two groups rushed the border from different ends of the park.

A total of 52 people were arrested for crossing the border illegally and CBP said it did not appear anyone got away. Those taken into custody included 23 men ranging in age from 18 to 53, 15 women ranging in age from 21 to 50, and 17 juveniles ranging from 1 to 14 years old, the CBP reported. All 52 people were taken to a nearby Border Patrol station for identification and processing.
