Pregnant border crosser rescued from island in raging Rio Grande

A pregnant border crosser was rescued Sunday from the Rio Grande by U.S. border agents after high waters and intense currents stranded her on an island.

The Honduran woman was spotted after she waved at agents patrolling near the Eagle Pass Port of Entry, authorities said.

"The Rio Grande River can be a dangerous force of nature," said Felix Chavez, chief patrol agent for the Del Rio Sector. "Due to the watchfulness of our agents, a potentially life-threatening emergency was avoided on Sunday in Eagle Pass. I am very proud of everyone involved in this latest rescue."

The woman was not injured and was taken to the Eagle Pass South Station, where she was handed over to immigration officials because of her illegal status.
