Drain Pipe Used for Crossing into U.S. Open for Hours

Posted: Updated:
U.S. authorities have learned that the border drain, where eight illegal immigrants were found over the weekend, had been open for hours before the group got trapped trying to cross the border.

Agents used a robotic camera to help in the rescue. They managed to locate and remove seven adults and a teenage boy from the 30-inch pipe.

No one was injured.

The border patrol said one person was arrested and the rest were returned to Mexico.
