A construction company was excavating near the U.S. Mexico border fence in Los Algodones, Mexico Tuesday night around 8 p.m. About 114 feet of border fence collapsed.
“There are extra agents in this area, air assets are on stand by and will adjust where needed as well,” Spencer Tippets, U.S. Border Patrol spokesman of the Yuma sector said. “Extra security will be in place until the fence is repaired.”
The excavating equipment belonged to Haro express, a Mexican material transporting company.
