ACUÑA, Mexico – Civil Protection and Fire Department first responders in Acuña recovered Thursday the body of a man who drowned in the Rio Grande, when he tried to cross into the United States illegally.

Even when the man was accompanied by his brother, who was holding him by the hand, the strong current of the river dragged him into deep waters and the brother could do nothing to save him.
