Portion of US border wall in California falls into Mexico amid high winds

A newly constructed portion of the US border wall tumbled into Mexico Wednesday afternoon amid high winds, a report said.

Panels from the wall broke free from their concrete foundation, which had yet to set, in Calexico, California, US Customs and Border Protection Agent Carlos Pitones told CNN.

The panels landed on trees and nobody was injured.

Pitones said the panels couldn’t withstand the windy condition since the concrete had yet to cure, the report said.

“We are grateful there was no property damage or injuries,” Pitones told the outlet.

It’s unclear when wall construction in the area will resume.
