Four men were arrested in the Black's Beach area Tuesday morning in connection with a human-smuggling incident involving jet skis, according to authorities.

Border Patrol agents report they spotted two jet skis crossing the US-Mexican border in an apparent human-smuggling incident at around 11:30 p.m. Monday evening.

Hours later at 1:30 a.m., an Office of Air and Marine helicopter witnessed the same jet skis unloading passengers in the surf near Black's Beach, according to Border Patrol officials.

Agents responded to the scene and subsequently arrested four Mexican nationals, officials said.

San Diego police assisted the agents as they took the men into custody, according to police.

Agents said the drivers of the jet skis fled back to Mexico.
