President Biden's southern border crisis continues to spiral out of control. The latest comes as a reconnaissance helicopter monitoring a group of migrants illegally crossing the border crashed on Friday afternoon, killing two US National Guard members and a Border Patrol agent and injuring a fourth person.

A statement from the Defense Department's Joint Task Force North said the Eurocopter UH-72 Lakota crashed around 1450 local time while it was "conducting aviation operations" near Rio Grande City, Texas. 

On X, Fox News' Bill Melugin posted horrific images of the mangled helicopter that appears to have fallen out of the sky. 

For the pilots out there, when a mechanical failure occurs, autorotation can be applied as a last-ditch emergency maneuver to glide the helicopter to the ground. However, altitude is needed.

Melugin also posted on X a video of what appears to be Mexican cartel members laughing as the helicopter crashed. 

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
