A man who tried to illegally enter the United States suffered a severe injury on Sunday after he fell from a 30-foot border wall located near Calexico, California. The man ended up with both of his legs fractured and might have also hurt his back.

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection confirmed the incident on Monday.

The Customs and Border Protection immediately sent paramedics and fire department personnel after learning that a man entering the country illegally had an accident. The man was even brought to a hospital in Palm Springs via a helicopter.

The CBP chose not to release the man’s identity yet.

The CBP also posted on Twitter the security footage of the incident. The clip shows a figure falling from the wall and staying motionless after the strong impact.

Border Patrol spokesman Carlos Pitones said the U.S. government usually shoulders the medical bills for people injured crossing the border illegally, before deporting them after they recover.

Social media users expressed concerns over the expenses the U.S. government and naturally, the American people, have to fork over for illegal immigrants. Some say the incident is yet another proof of the need to build a tougher wall on the country’s borders.

a trebuchet to launch them back over to their proper side would suffice. another deterrent would be to adorn the Mexican side 2/3rds from the top with electric fencing. That way they fall back into mexico and its their problem.

He should've been shot when they found him.

I think it needs to be taller, the spic survived.

something must really be done to address this huge problem, unfair to continue making Americans pay for their medical bills when something untoward happens. Hey what Dems have to say to this huh?!
