California Boy's Care Crosses International Border

JACUMBA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say an American boy injured in a Mexican car crash was lifted over a fence to Border Patrol agents who treated him for 40 minutes until paramedics arrived.

Border Patrol spokesman Scott Simon told U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/KtrSpw ) the 4-year-old boy had been visiting relatives in Jacume, Mexico, on Monday about 8:30 p.m. when he was struck by a car.

Simon said Wednesday the patrol's international liaison asked for help. Boulevard station agents went to the remote area near Jacumba and located the family.

The boy's 18-year-old, American cousin was also lifted over the fence so he could accompany the youngster.

Simon says the boy was then airlifted to a hospital and is in stable condition.
