A 6-month-old baby girl was rescued by a special operations team of Texas Rangers from the Rio Grande River after a smuggler threw the little girl out of a raft, the Texas Department of Public Safety announced on social media Tuesday.

In a Facebook post, the Texas DPS said the South Texas Special Operations Group, Texas Rangers Division assisted the U.S. Border Patrol in Roma, Texas, with the rescue of a 6-month-old female child who had been thrown out of a raft and into the river by human traffickers.

"This specialized group is a highly trained tactical team whose primary responsibility is to carry out specific missions, usually along the Texas-Mexico border region or wherever needed," the post continued. "The team is designed to conduct both overt and extended covert operations in remote areas where conventional law enforcement cannot operate. The team's focus is to gather intelligence, conduct interdiction, and disruption of criminal activity usually associated with drug cartels."
