(CNN) — Officials released a photograph of the two young children who were seen being dropped over a border fence in New Mexico by smugglers last week.
A Customs and Border Protection spokesperson said they are in CBP custody and are in good health.
The two rescued girls, ages 3 and 5, are from Ecuador.
Border Patrol Sector Chief Gloria Chavez met with them on Wednesday and released a photo of the encounter.
The children are awaiting transfer to Health and Human Services custody to then be reunited with family or sponsors.
