Stunning new video shows the moment a smuggler dropped a 2-year-old migrant child over the border wall — the child falling into the outstretched arms of his or her awaiting father.
The 48-second clip was tweeted Wednesday by Aaron Heitke, the chief patrol agent of the US Border Patrol San Diego Sector, who said the incident happened Sunday.
“#BorderPatrol agents witnessed a smuggler drop a two-year-old child from atop the 18-foot-high border wall into the arms of the child’s father,” Heitke wrote. “This event could have been catastrophic. Luckily, the child was not injured.”
