NOGALES, AZ - The higher the wall, the harder they will fall. That's what border crossers trying to scale the new border fence at Nogales are painfully finding out.
The imposing new border fence running through Nogales is proving to be a treacherous obstacle for suspected illegal immigrants
A Nogales Police Department report says on Aug. 12, a woman broke her leg after climbing the border fence.
Two days later, officers found a second injured fence climber. And a third, suspected illegal immigrant from China fell and broke his leg on Aug 22.
Nogales Fire Department Chief Hector Robles tells the Nogales International that in addition to the height of the fence, adrenaline and miscalculations in determining the distance and angle of a fall are potential injury factors.
