Authorities Monday publicly identified a 56-year-old man who died after apparently falling from a fence along the U.S.-Mexico border in Otay Mesa.

Efren Medina Villegas fell from a section of the border wall roughly three miles east of the Otay Mesa Port of Entry around 7:30 a.m. Thursday, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Border Patrol agents responded, but Villegas was pronounced dead at the scene.
