A man is in custody after getting stuck on the border fence in Otay Mesa Tuesday, according to officials.

Border officials noticed a man in distress around 3:45 p.m. near La Media Road and Kerns Street. Aerial pictures show him trapped in the barbed wire.

Firefighters used a ladder to reach the man. They were eventually able to free him from the fence, which stands more than 20 feet tall.

The man wasn’t injured, officials say. He is now being questioned by Border Patrol.
