In the early morning hours of September 14, a crewman aboard a National Guard helicopter in support of the U.S. Border Patrol observed a distant fire in the desolate desert of Yuma Sector. The helicopter approached to investigate and found a group of migrants who hoped above all to be found by the same people that for days they had been hiding from. One of the men filled with emotion and gratitude for his rescue offered to tell his story with the hope that others considering illegally entering the United States might learn from his nearly deadly decision.
