Eight American children, including a seven-month-old baby, were found in a car with their parents in Tijuana, Mexico.
The crew was traced on Wednesday (27) after a complaint was lodged with the local police.
In the case received by the police, witnesses said that the parents were not feeding their children.
According to the Tijuana Metropolitan Police, upon arriving at the scene, officers realized that all were living in unsanitary conditions, “covered in dirt, with spoiled food and insects.”
In photographs published by the international press, children can be seen sharing the cramped space with dirt and fast food packets. A seven-month-old baby is in a car seat with an older sister.
The children’s parents are a 35-year-old American citizen identified as Beatriz “N” and a 40-year-old Mexican man identified as Jesus “N”.
According to Mexican channel Telemundo, the children are 15, 11, 7, 6, 5, 4 years old and seven months old. Among them three boys and five girls.
All have US citizenship and were sent to shelters. It is currently unclear whether they will be held in the Latin country or sent back to the United States.
