More than a dozen people tried to sneak into the U.S. through a storm drain Thursday officials said.

At least fourteen people trying to enter the U.S. illegally were taken into custody by agents with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The group was caught coming out of a storm drain around 3 a.m. Thursday at Border Village Road and Virginia Avenue in San Ysidro, south of San Diego and just north of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Two people were taken to Scripps Hospital in Chula Vista with minor injuries, according to emergency crews with San Diego Fire-Rescue.
