Paramedics determined that the man broke his legs and may have injured his back. He was taken to a hospital in Palm Springs.

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. source
