NOGALES, Ariz. (CBS4) – U.S. Border Patrol agents in southern Arizona found a woman dangling from the U.S.-Mexico border fence.

They said they saw two smugglers trying to lower her down using a harness and rope. She was about 15 feet above the ground.
Agents say the woman tried to climb back over the fence, but wasn’t successful.
She was eventually lowered and detained. CBP says she “is being processed for immigration violations.”
