Border Patrol agents in Alpine rescued a mom and her kids just in the nick of time.

It all started when they noticed a car driving up and down Highway 170.

When they approached it, the driver said four of their family members were stuck on fast moving river.

The four were on floatation devices but they didn't realize the river current would be so strong.

Without hesitation, the agents threw a support line into the water and pulled all four family members out.

None were injured.
