SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – A woman fell to her death at the border wall in Otay Mesa late Thursday night, according to local authorities.

San Diego Police said emergency responders were called to the U.S.-Mexico border wall near Britannia Court at around 11:30 p.m. after Border Patrol agents discovered a person had fallen from the structure.

The woman, who was in her 20s, died at the scene.

Since the wall’s height has increased to around 30 feet, there has been a rise in injuries from falls at the border wall. In March alone, there have been at least 19 incidents.
