The agency said in a press release the 37-year-old woman from Mexico was abandoned by smugglers last Saturday.

Agents tweeted they had to call the Nogales Fire Department to help get her down.

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.”
