Mexican national dies after apparent fall from Arizona border wall


A 33-year-old Mexican man died in American custody on Saturday about a week after falling from the U.S.-Mexico border wall, authorities said.

The man was found injured in an open field near Yuma, Arizona by agents from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection on July 26, the agency said. He told agents he had plunged from the wall.

Emergency responders immediately rendered first aid before transporting him to Yuma Regional Medical Center. He died there 6 days later, CBP announced Sunday.

Girón Luna was believed to be eight months pregnant when she fell. Her baby was unable to be saved.
