An Illegal Angel?

A woman and her son while camping in Southern Arizona were travelling on a U.S. Forest Road. The woman lost control of her van and tumbled down a canyon, she was pinned in the car. Her son was unhurt. He became disoriented, crawled out to get help and was found about two hours later by Jesus Manuel Cordova, 26, of Magdalena de Kino in the northern Mexican state of Sonora.

Unable to pull the mother out, Jesus comforted the boy while they waited for help. He reassured the boy that everything was going to be all right. As temperatures dropped, Jesus gave the boy a jacket, built a bonfire and stayed with him until about 8 a.m. Friday, when hunters passed by and called authorities.

The boy was flown to the University Medical Center in Tuscon. Jesus was taken into custody by Border Patrol agents, who were the first to respond to the call for help. He had been trying to walk into the U.S. when he came across the boy.

Jesus was the boy's angel.
