As per Law 19 (BOUNDARIES)
Section 3 (a) (ii)
a fielder with some part of his person in contact with the ball, touches the boundary or has some part of his person grounded beyond the boundary.
And section 3 (b) *
The phrases ‘touches the boundary’ and ‘touching the boundary’ shall mean contact with either (i) the boundary edge as defined in 2 above or (ii) any person or obstacle within the field of play which has been designated a boundary by the umpires before the toss.
*read the bolded part specially
So as per section 3 (b) if a fielder with some part of his person in contact with the ball touches any person/object outside the boundary line, it will be declared a boundary.
