A Guatemalan migrant attempting to enter the US illegally with her two young children last week was impaled by pieces of rebar after falling from a border fence.

According to Border Patrol agent Tekae Michael, a young mother-of-two was injured near the San Ysidro Port of Entry at 8.25pm on Friday and landed on pieces of rebar that pierced her one side of her body and her buttocks.
The 26-year-old Guatemalan woman was with her two children, ages 3 and 5, when she crossed illegally, said Border Patrol Agent Tekae Michael. She told agents she was not part of the massive migrant caravan camped out in Tijuana, Michael said.
Responding border agents administered first aid to the woman and requested paramedics and the San Diego Fire Department for assistance.
