An infant girl died after being carried by her mother across the border, Homeland Security announced Friday, adding to this year’s soaring death toll.

The 2-month-old Honduran girl was part of a large group of migrants Border Patrol agents found near Rio Grande City, Texas. When apprehended, the mother told agents the girl had been running a fever and had a cough and diarrhea for the previous six days.

There was no emergency medical technician on-site so a supervisory agent dialed 911 and rushed the baby to a nearby highway to meet the local rescue squad. The baby was breathing and making noise at that time, but four minutes later, when they reached the highway, the infant had stopped breathing.
