Customs and Border Protection agents in Texas plucked two young siblings from the Rio Grande, where they had been abandoned, the agency announced Tuesday.

The children, who were 3 months old and 2 years old, were unhurt.

"At approximately noon, Border Patrol Riverine agents assigned to the Eagle Pass South Station were performing boat operations when they noticed an unusual color on the riverbank," the Border Patrol said in a statement. "As agents investigated the item, they discovered two small children abandoned."
