Five different rescue teams were out there today from different valley cities, in hopes to rescue Andres Frias, from the waters of a canal in McAllen.
Moments of desperation lived family members of Andres Frias, today.
Their loved one swam in the waters of this canal Thursday, when the strong currents took him away.
McAllen firefighters, in assistance of the Hidalgo Fire departments boat rescue team, searched S. of the canal, near the beginning of an underground duct that sucks water into two 72-inch underground pipes.
This while Pharr and McAllen firefighters searched N. of the canal, at the end of the underground water duct almost fully submerged under water.
The distance from the beginning of the duct until the end if almost half a mile.
Andres’ mother says, rescue teams are not doing enough.
Authorities say, canals in the county are not designed to be recreational spots.
They ask the public to please not swim in them, due to the dangers.
The rescue teams did not have any luck today, they said they will be back orrow morning.
