An illegal immigrant attempted to jump over a new 30-foot high border wall in California — and it didn’t end well.
The man reportedly fell while trying to scale the wall and broke both of his legs.
Surveillance video released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows the man throwing his body over the wall and taking a nasty fall. He is seen in the video lying motionless after his bold and poorly thought out attempt to illegally enter the United States.
Paramedics rushed the man to the hospital in Palm Springs with broken legs and a possible back injury, Fox 11 reported.
“The Border Patrol didn't identify the man. Spokesman Carlos Pitones says the U.S. government typically pays medical expenses for people who are injured crossing the border illegally and they are deported after recovery,” the report added.
President Donald Trump promised Americans he would build a wall, and he’s keeping his word.
Trump is even getting some support from Democrats.
Just on Monday, Trump tweeted, "Democrats want Open Borders and they want to abolish ICE, the brave men and women that are protecting our Country from some of the most vicious and dangerous people on earth! Sorry, we can’t let that happen! Also, change the rules in the Senate and approve STRONG Border Security!"
The 30-foot wall is part of a new 2-mile stretch of “barrier made from recycled metal scraps and landing mat with the new bollard-style wall,” according to Fox 11.
