McALLEN - Border Patrol agents rescued two immigrants from the South Texas brush in two separate incidents.
The first rescue happened Sunday evening. Authorities said a human smuggler abandoned the man near La Grulla.

The agents used a helicopter and boats to find the man and give him first aid.
The second rescue happened Monday in Brooks County. Dispatchers received a call from a man in distress. Agents, along with a K9 search-and-rescue team, found the man.
The immigrant was severely dehydrated.
