Migrant boy abandoned in desert asks guard for help

US Customs and Border Protection has released a video showing a migrant boy who claims he was abandoned in the desert approaching a border agent and asking for help.

In the video, the boy - whose name, age and nationality have been withheld because he is a juvenile - can be seen standing on the side of a dirt road as a border agent pulls up next to him.

The boy tells the agent he was with a group of individuals crossing the border but was left behind near the Rio Grande in Texas.
