YUMA, Ariz. (WTHR) - Border Patrol cameras captured the moment three small children were dropped over an 18-foot border wall in Arizona early Monday.

It happened near the San Luis port of entry.

The video shows at least one person on the Mexico side of the wall helping the familiy of six climb over the wall. Adult members of the fmaily went first, sliding to safety before waiting at the bottom.

Those adults later caught the children, who are said to be ages 2, 7 and 10. One of the children was treated for a facial injury, but is said to be doing OK.

The family, who is from Guatemala, surrendered to Border Patrol agents at the scene. All six were taken into custody.
