8 found dead in trailer

Human Trafficking In Texas: 8 Found Dead Inside Truck In Walmart Parking Lot

McManus urged anyone who encounters potential instances of human trafficking, or individuals who appear to be fleeing such conditions to call 911.

Several other people, possibly dozens, were found inside the truck, which did not have a working air conditioning system.

U.S. Immigrant and Customs Enforcement agents and San Antonio police were also called to the scene. "Air ambulances (AirLife), and the SAFD Ambus (mobile mass casualty transportation vehicle) were also both utilized to transport the multitude of patients we encountered".

The employee "came back with the water, called the police, and we found eight dead in the back of that trailer", McManus said.

At some point, somehow, one of the passengers got out of the trailer and asked a Walmart employee for water.

Among the eight dead were two young children.

The National Weather Service says the temperature in San Antonio hit 101 degrees just before 5 p.m. Saturday and didn't dip below 90 degrees until after 10 p.m.

The driver of the truck has not been identified, but San Antonio police took him into custody and he could face state and federal charges.

The truck was located outside of a Walmart near I-35 in south San Antonio. The person said that there were people inside the trailer who needed help.

The survivors were taken to at least seven area hospitals.

"We're looking at a human-trafficking crime here", said McManus.

Ten days earlier, Houston police officers discovered 12 illegal aliens locked inside a trailer in the sweltering heat of the Texas summer, Breitbart Texas reported.

McManus said events like this are all too common and warned the public to contact police if they see groups of people exiting from large vehicles like tractor-trailers. Measures to harden worldwide borders encourage would-be migrants to turn to smugglers and fear of deportation deters whistle-blowing, they said.
