A heartbreaking video has emerged purportedly showing a 5-year-old boy screaming "don’t go!" after being abandoned along the U.S.-Mexico border.
"Here, here! No, no! Don't go, no!" the boy is reportedly heard screaming to the other side of the Rio Grande River.
The woman who abandoned the child briefly returned to him following his screams, but ultimately leaves him by himself, clutching his teddy bear, the AFP reports.
The U.S. Border Patrol then shows up and is seen talking to the child before escorting him away.
