More than 20 migrants were rescued from a drainage tube.

Firefighters were called in to help as the water started to rise due to heavy rain. They were able to rescue additional people through an access manhole. Seven of the people found were taken to local hospitals to be evaluated.

Once they’re released, the group will be processed and deported to their countries. The group of 20 included 15 men, three women, and a boy from Mexico. One man was from Guatemala.
