News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

YUMA- Border Patrol agents saved a man who had a heart attack at a U.S.-Mexico border checkpoint, the agency said Monday.

Agency spokesman Michael Bernacke says the man was traveling by the checkpoint on Interstate 8 in Yuma on Saturday morning.

The man complained of chest pain and believed he was suffering from the symptoms of a heart attack.

Bernacke says the man passed out and began to convulse, and did not have a pulse and was not breathing.

Agents used an automated external defibrillator to give the man an electric shock, which revived his heart. They then conducted rescue breaths on the man until he could breath on his own.
