8 dead, 30 found injured inside semi-trailer at San Antonio Walmart

He said that if any resident in the area encounters someone from the truck, they should "call 911 right away". Temperatures in the area held above 100 degrees Fahrenheit until 6 pm local time on Saturday and were expected to soar into the 100s again on Sunday, with humidity making the heat feel close to 110 degrees, forecasters said. The employee then saw a number of people in the back of the truck and called police. On July 7, agents found 72 people crammed into a truck with no means of escape, the agency said. Eight inside were already dead. He added the driver is likely to face both state and federal charges, WCVB5 reported.

Some survivors also ran when they heard police sirens and helicopters.

But many more remained, badly needing help.

Twenty people were airlifted to seven hospitals in conditions ranging from "critical to very critical", Hood said. "Each one of them had heart rates over about 130 beats per minute".

Medical personnel declared 8 people deceased on the scene. Eight more people were treated for less severe injuries, officials said.

"With heat stroke, you sometimes have neurological deficits that you're never going to be able to recover from". "Eight are deceased that are on the scene still", Hood said.

COPS are probing a suspected human trafficking ring after eight immigrants, including two children, were found dead inside a truck in a Walmart auto park. When authorities arrived, the trailer had been opened, and that is when the grisly scene unfolded.

A hearse pulled into the parking lot early Sunday morning, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

Authorities don't know how long that truck had been sitting in the Walmart parking lot or where it came from, but they know it had no air conditioning. It advertised an Iowa company - Pyle Transportation - on the side.

He said store security footage showed that some vehicles came to pick up some travellers who were on the truck and who had made it out alive.

"[Seventeen] patients were transported [to the hospital] priority 1 (life threatening injury/illness) and 13 were transported priority 2 (not immediately life threatening)", the San Antonio Fire Department said in a statement.
