Father-Daughter Reunion at Polish Border Left Cameraman 'Shattered': Video

A photographer was left "shattered" by a father-daughter reunion he witnessed earlier this week in Medyka, Poland at the Poland-Ukraine border, Storyful reported.

The photographer, David Melero Pena, posted a video of the sweet moment to his Instagram page on March 6. So far, it has received more than 6,000 views and over 400 likes, while shedding light on Ukraine's ongoing refugee crisis after Russian President initiated a full-scale invasion on February 24.

The video opened with the girl giggling in her father's arms.

"Papa," she said before leaning in to give her father a hug. Throughout the remainder of the clip, the girl gently hits her head against her father's as he scans the crowds gathered at the border.

"The reunion...destroyed me while editing photos and video," wrote Melero Pena in his post's caption, according to Instagram's provided translation. "I just have no words."

Melero Pena has been documenting the arrival of Ukrainian refugees in Medyka since early March, said Storyful. He has posted several images from the border to his Instagram page, including one from March 4 that showed a young girl grasping a teddy bear in one hand and eating a chocolate bar with the other.

"A girl eats chocolate while holding a teddy bear at the border...just arrived from Ukraine," read the post's caption, according to the provided translation. "There was a massive wave of refugees entering Poland yesterday fleeing war.

"Thousands and thousands of families, mostly women and children, arrive on foot," the caption continued, "with cars, buses and trains looking for refuge."

More than 2 million Ukrainians have fled their country since the Russian invasion began, and the United Nations estimated that the number of Ukrainian refugees will surpass 4 million in the coming weeks and months, Newsweek reported.

"At this rate, the situation looks set to become Europe's largest refugee crisis this century," U.N. refugee agency spokesperson Shabia Mantoo told Newsweek.

In addition to Poland, refugees have fled to countries such as Romania and Hungary, among others. Poland, however, has received an estimated 1.3 million refugees as of March 8, "the largest number of refugees by far," said Newsweek.

The Medyka crossing, reported Reuters, is "the busiest along Poland's roughly 500-kilometer [310-mile] border with Ukraine."

Another video taken from Medyka earlier this week captured a young Ukrainian boy crying as he made his way across the border.

CNN correspondent Josh Campbell shared the clip to Twitter, where it has amassed more than 4 million views.

"Excruciating," he said of the video.
