This is the heartbreaking moment when a migrant boy shouted furiously at his mother as he was dragged into a rift in the Rio Grande.

At least 30 children and adults who have avoided the Mexican immigration troops in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, have crossed the river which serves as a dangerous passage to the American dream in the United States.

A camera crew out Univision caught the moment as they sauntered through the seemingly calm waters of the Rio Bravo, as it is also known, before panic suddenly struck.

& # 39; I don't want to lose my mother, & # 39; the migrant child cried while his mother struggled to float beside another adult man.

The mother eventually came to the American coast in Texas after a heroic effort from the migrants.

One of her sons crossed the river after the refugees had formed a human chain.

Her husband and other son later joined them after US customs and border protection agents arrived on two rafts to help them and other migrants.

The sight of the migrants who risked their lives by walking across the shallow but dangerous Rio Grande brought back memories of the Salvadoran migration father and his daughter, who were found dead on the river's Mexican at the end of June.

After desperately waiting for the family's asylum meeting with American immigration officials, Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez first crossed the deadly currents in the Matamoros area with his child before returning to the other side for his wife.

But the 23-month-old Valeria, who did not understand why she had been left on the other side, returned to the water. Ramírez went in fatally to save her before a stream dragged them to their deaths.
