DOUGLAS, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Two women and a man from Mexico are recovering from bee stings, dehydration and exhaustion after being rescued from a mountainside northeast of Douglas, according to Customs and Border Protection officials.

A woman called the Tucson Sector Border Patrol around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday to say she and two others were lost, without water and had been stung by bees.

A Border Patrol agent located them around 4:30 a.m. on Monday on the side of a mountain, south of Saddle Gap. The agent reported they appeared dehydrated and unable to walk, according to a news release.

A Blackhawk helicopter crew from the Office of Air and Marine's Tucson Air Branch, along with a Border Search, Tucson Sector Trauma and Rescue team, responded just before 5:30 a.m. and hoisted the three people out of the rough terrain. They were flown to Douglas Airport where Douglas Fire Department paramedics then took them to a local hospital for treatment.

The community can anonymously report suspicious activity to the border patrol at (877) 872-7435 toll free. All calls will be answered and remain anonymous.
