According to Chief Modlin, agents from the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station responded to the 911 call and found the injured lady in the rocky Huachuca Mountains.
Because of the terrain, the agents had to carry the woman out of the mountains by hand to an ambulance. The woman was recognized as a Mexican national who was unlawfully present in the United States by the authorities.
