Two undocumented immigrants in their 20s died this morning, apparently from exhaustion and heat-related injuries.
Shortly after midnight today, county Sherrif's Office deputies found the body of a woman in her early 20s south of the Nomirage area near Ocotillo, said county Chief Deputy Coroner Sgt. Rick Macken.
A group of undocumented immigrants apprehended Tuesday night alerted authorities to the ailing woman, who was dead by the time authorities reached her.
A second undocumented immigrant, a male in his mid-20s, was transported via ambulance to Pioneers Memorial Hospital in Brawley on Tuesday night, where he died shortly after midnight.
