Four-year-old boy is thrown over the 9-meter border fence to get him into the U.S.
A security camera on the U.S.-Mexico border has recorded the moment when a minor is thrown over the wall separating the two countries, which is more than 9 meters high.
They show three people, two adults and a 4-year-old child, jumping over the wall. At one point, one of the adults drops the child to the ground from above.
Fortunately he was uninjured and all are in the custody of the Border Patrol. “Surprisingly, the child is fine.”Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz tweeted, along with the one-minute, 37-second video the agency posted on social media.
A 4-year-old was dropped from the border barrier by an unknown subject in San Diego, Monday. Responding Agents and EMS providing first aid to the child also reported gunshots near their position while tending to the child. Remarkably, the child is ok!

Still it is not yet known whether the adults were the parents of the child, as well as their nationality. For the moment, it has not been communicated whether the process will continue in the United States, or if they will be deported.
