A man believed to be an undocumented immigrant had to be rescued after he attempted to climb over a border fence and became stuck in the razor wire along the California-Mexico border.

Border Patrol officers spotted the man stuck about 20 feet in the air at around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday and called the San Diego Fire Dept. to get him down.

Using a large ladder, it took the fire department about an hour to free the man, who was looked over by emergency responders before being taken into custody.

KSWB FOX 5 was on the scene.
