BODYCAM footage has captured the moment a sobbing migrant boy begged for help from a border patrol officer after being abandoned in the desert.
The little lad had apparently unlawfully entered the United States from Mexico and had been left behind by a group who had been traveling with.
In this latest clip to shine the spotlight on the spiraling humanitarian crisis on the southern border, the child tells the officer: "It's that I was coming with a group and they abandoned me and I do not know where they are at."
He then asks him: "You do not know where they are at? They left you alone?"
The visibly frightened child had apparently been sent to the United States by his parents, who were not part of the migrant group.
The boy said: "At the end they abandoned me. I have come here to ask you for help."
The Border Patrol agent then quizzed the child if he had been told "to come ask for help?"
Somebody could abduct me, kidnap me. I am scared
But he replied: "No, I am coming because if I did not, where am I going to go? Somebody could abduct me, kidnap me. I am scared."
The heartbreaking incident reportedly took place east of Rio Grande City on April 1, the agent's friend Anjel Hernandez wrote on Facebook.
It comes as The Sun has exclusively obtained disturbing footage and video showing the tearful children wading through the river in a last-ditch effort to enter the United States in the early hours of this morning.

Speaking to Fox & Friends, Ron DeSantis raged: "This is a Biden-caused disaster and because he rejected the policies that president Trump had put in that were working, you now have this serious situation at the border.
"Absolutely it makes our country more vulnerable to that type of infiltration [like the two terrorists arrested] but it's more than just that: they basically stopped enforcing immigration law.
More than 170,000 migrants have been detained at the southwest border in March.

The total included 19,000 unaccompanied migrant kids and 53,000 family members traveling together.
But despite the humanitarian crisis, Biden released a video thanking newly naturalized citizens.
He said: "You all have one thing in common — courage.
"The courage it takes to sacrifice and make this journey.
"The courage to leave your homes, your lives, your loved ones, and come to a nation that is more than just a place but rather an idea.
"You have earned a new title equal to that of an American president, the title I’m most proud of — citizen."
