    The footage released by the US Customs and Border Protection agency shows a small group of illegal migrants attempting to climb over an old section of the border wall in Arizona.

    A three-year-old girl, who was among the other migrants, can be seen falling 16 feet from atop the ladder. The Border Patrol's Yuma Sector spokesman Jose Garibay has stated that the girl sustained minor injuries due to the incident, adding that the agents had called paramedics in order to help her.

    The whole group of 49 migrants was later detained by the authorities.
