Nearly five dozen illegal immigrants who traveled from Central America to the U.S. were reportedly rescued by Border Patrol agents last week after their smugglers allegedly abandoned them in the Arizona desert during a heatwave.

Agents from the Tucson Sector of the U.S.-Mexico border responded to an area west of Lukeville, which has a Port of Entry, after someone within the group called Mexican authorities for help, the agency said in a news release.
