Shocking is the video recorded by security cameras installed on the US-Mexico border showing incredible scenes. A man abandons a one-year-old child and leaves the scene.
The scenes recorded by the cameras are heartbreaking.
As CNN reports, the Mexican trafficker who has the child in his arms crossed the Colorado River. And when he reached his destination, he left the little boy all alone, on the asphalt, between the high fences.
The man is then seen running.
The little boy stood up and started walking just a few meters. Fortunately, he was not in danger.
A patrol car from the US side immediately rushed to the scene to rescue him.
The boy, who comes from Guatemala, is now in "good hands", comments the American network.
The incident could have ended in a tragedy, as the head of the American Border Guard writes on Twitter, who uploaded the relevant video on Twitter.
"Thanks to the quick reaction of our colleague, the tragedy was avoided!", he writes in his related caption.
The head of the US Border Patrol also uploaded a photo depicting an American officer proudly holding the child in his arms.
Unfortunately, this inhumane practice is not an isolated case: in the last five months, US border guards have rounded up more than 58.000 unaccompanied minors.
The reason why the small child was abandoned remains unclear, comments the German newspaper "Bild".
