Fifty-one migrants, including 21 children, were found hidden in secret compartments of a truck in Mexico. Officials used a large X-ray scanner at a checkpoint which uncovered the people who were mostly from central America.

Footage of the X-ray shows a ghost-like truck filled with the brightened silhouettes of the migrants, some sitting, others lying down along two levels in the crowded compartments.

The migrants from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Ecuador, 21 of whom were minors, are now in the custody of the country's National Migration Institute (INM), government officials said in a statement late on Sunday.
