Dead In What Police Call A 'Horrific Case Of Immigrant Smuggling'

McManus said police made the disturbing discovery after a Walmart employee was approached by someone from the truck who asked him for water.

Nine people are reportedly dead and at least 17 are in critical condition after a tractor trailer filled with undocumented immigrants was discovered at the border on a sweltering day. Those with non-life threatening injuries were taken to five other area hospitals, KENS5 reported.

Surveillance footage showed several vehicles had come to the auto park to pick up travellers who had made it out of the truck alive.

Police did not say where the vehicle came from, but confirmed that the driver was in custody. The truck held at least 38 people, according to authorities, and some occupants may have fled.

Based on initial interviews with survivors, Homan said there may have been more than 100 people in the truck.

The group of people recovered from the tractor-trailer included children and adults, San Antonio police chief William McManus and Fire Chief Charles Hood told media.

Another victim of what authorities are calling a "horrific" human smuggling operation has died, hours before the truck driver accused in the case was due to appear in court. He said there was no air conditioning in the trailer, leaving people "very hot to the touch".

McManus added that after the immigrants were treated for heat stroke and dehydration, they would then be investigated by ICE.
