SAN DIEGO (FOX 5/KUSI) — Border Patrol agents and San Diego Fire-Rescue (SDFD) responded to the border wall Saturday afternoon after receiving calls for mass injuries.

It was a chaotic scene as first responders tended to 10 people with varying injuries, some potentially with broken bones, after they fell from the 30-foot U.S./Mexico border wall near Border Field State Park around 4 p.m. Saturday, SDFD confirmed to FOX 5.

Around six ambulances took the injured and any accompanying children to local hospitals.

Several men that had climbed the wall but were not injured were detained by Border Patrol agents for questioning.
