Video shows sobbing boy abandoned by smugglers at US-Mexico border

Heartbreaking footage taken by an off-duty US Border Patrol officer shows a young boy in tears and begging for help—after he crossed the Rio Grande river in Texas.

The boy says he was abandoned by a group of migrants he was with.

“I came with a group,” the boy says. “They dumped me, and I don’t know where they are. They can rob me, kidnap me. I am afraid.”

The off-duty officer drove the child to a Border Patrol facility.

The boy survived at least one night in the desert which is extremely dangerous with rattlesnakes and wild animals abound, Univision reported.

Good reminder why we're here, poor kid.
