Border agents find bodies of 2 men who tried to enter US from Mexico through San Diego coast
SAN DIEGO (AP) ' The U.S. Border Patrol says two men were found dead on shores in the San Diego area during attempts to enter the country illegally from Mexico.
Spokesman Michael Jimenez says one was found off Imperial Beach bordering Mexico late Tuesday after swimming ashore with two men. They told agents that the man who died was a weak swimmer.
Agents say the body of another man was found early Wednesday inside a boat that crashed ashore in the densely populated Pacific Beach neighborhood. The cause of death is unknown.
Jimenez says 14 others on the boat were detained, 11 of which suffered injuries such as hypothermia, bumps and bruises.
