They rescue a pregnant woman and four children in the Rio Grande (VIDEO)

Coahuila.- A group of migrants were saved last weekend from the riverbed Bravo River Grupo Beta Piedras Negras of the National Institute of Migration (INM) in Coahuila. Among those rescued were a pregnant woman of Honduran origin with his daughter; two boys and a girl of Mexican nationality and another woman from Guatemala, who was leaning on crutches due to an ankle injury.

INM staff located the group of migrants at a point known as Paseo del Río, located between International Bridges 1 and 2.

The rescued Central American women recounted that they were stranded in the middle of the river when they realized that they would not be able to cross into the United States because of the strong current and the low temperature of the water. In addition, they explained that they were afraid that one of the minors would escape from their hands.

The Beta Group first took the pregnant woman and her daughter to Mexican soil, then they returned for the other two minors and for the pregnant woman.
