Authorities in a Spanish territory in Africa made a shocking discovery when they found an 8-year-old boy stuffed into a suitcase in an attempt to smuggle him into the area.

A 21-year-old woman was carrying the suitcase where the boy was hidden when she tried to cross from Morocco into Ceuta. (Source: CNN.com. Note: Woman's age was previously reported as 19.)

"When they put the suitcase through the scanner, the operator noticed something strange, which seemed to be a person inside the case," explained a spokesman for the Civil Guard police.

When the authorities opened the suitcase, they found the Ivorian boy in a “terrible state.”

The Civil Guard arrested the woman, as well as the boy’s father when he tried to cross the same border hours later.

The border is facing an issue with thousands of migrants who risk their lives every year trying to make it to Europe in hopes of a better life.
