    San Diego County authorities say two suspected illegal immigrants died of hypothermia.

    A woman identified as 18-year-old Diana Gonzalez Aguilar died at a hospital on Sunday and the body of a man in his 20s or 30s was found in the eastern county community of Descanso on Monday.

    The San Diego Union-Tribune says authorities believe the Mexican citizens were in a party of seven that crossed the border near Tecate over the weekend.

    Five were later driven into San Diego, including Aguilar. However, authorities say she became unconscious and was dropped off on a San Diego street along with a relative.
