Five Rescued After Night in Desert

El Paso – Five men are safe after spending a night stranded in the Texas desert east of El Paso.

El Paso County deputies, working with the U.S. Border Patrol, rescued the men Sunday morning after one of them called for help.

The group, deputies said, got stranded trying to find a piece of property a relative had bought in the desert. They were found in nearby Hudpseth County.
