TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Caught on camera: a border crosser hopping the fence in Nogales -- with a group of U.S. senators standing nearby.

A woman scaled the fence near downtown Nogales Wednesday morning. She was coming from Mexico.

Nearby, a group of senators -- including Arizona's John McCain and Jeff Flake -- observed the incident. In the ABC News video, they're seen pointing in the direction of the woman.

Border Patrol soon caught her.

The senators are members of the "Gang of Eight," who were visiting Southern Arizona to tour the border.
