Nov 7, 2019, 8:46 AM | Updated: 3:43 pm

LA MORA, Mexico – The women and children who were killed in an ambush Monday near the U.S.-Mexico border are being laid to rest Thursday while new video shows the moment one of the babies was found alive inside a bullet-riddled SUV.

The first funeral was held at 10 a.m. Thursday while the second will begin later this afternoon.

The town of La Mora is under heavy military guard as the community of about 800 people deal with the loss of their loved ones. Three mothers and six children were brutally murdered earlier in the week on a road to Chihuahua.

“It was very difficult,” said resident William Langford. “Worst thing I’ve seen. Kids with bullet wounds. It was pretty bad. Horrible.”

The military guard is bringing some safety during the funerals, but area residents are reporting they no longer feel safe and are considering relocating.

New video shows the moment 7-month-old Faith was found alive inside one of the damaged vehicles.

Family members said Faith’s mother, Christina Langford Johnson, hid the child inside the car before stepping out of the SUV with her hands up.

She was shot and killed but Faith was found 11 hours later, still alive.
