San Antonio Tractor Trailer Horror: At least 42 bodies found inside, 16 people taken to hospitals

At least 42 people were found dead in a semi-truck in southwest San Antonio, Texas, local authorities said. Several outlets reported Monday night – hours after temperatures in the city soared to 103 degrees – that at least 16 others at the scene had been taken to hospitals.

“It’s probably close [to] 100 in the truck,” a law enforcement source said San Antonio Express Newsadding that “about half” of the group is likely dead.

The 18-wheeler was found next to a set of railroad tracks in a remote area called Quintana Road, according to KSAT-12. The discovery prompted a massive police response, with first responders using thermal imaging cameras being spotted along the tracks and apparently searching a wooded area nearby for more people.

A KSAT-12 reporter called the situation “a possible case of people smuggling.” in a tweet when she went to the crime scene. Federal immigration officers were en route to the area Monday night Express News said.

The death toll is expected to rise.

This is an evolving story and will be updated.
