A family from Guatemala was arrested after an adult dropped three young children over an 18-foot wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Border Patrol said Monday that cameras in the Yuma Sector captured an adult on the Mexican side dropping children ages 2, 7 and 10 onto the U.S. side of the border, where another adult was waiting.
The 2-year-old suffered minor injuries to her face when she was dropped into the U.S., the Border Patrol said.
