SAN ANTONIO — Forty-six migrants were found dead in the back of a tractor trailer Monday in southwest San Antonio, officials confirmed. At least 16 others -- 12 adults and four children -- were taken to nearby hospitals.
San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said all the deaths stemmed from heat-related causes, including heat stroke and exhaustion. All were reportedly inside the back of the tractor-trailer that had no visible working A/C unit and no water, he said.
The discovery was made shortly before 6 p.m. by a nearby worker who heard cries for help coming from the truck, which was parked in the area of Quintana Road and Cassin Drive, said San Antonio Police Chief William McMannus.
Officers arrived to find a body on the ground outside the trailer and a partially opened gate to the trailer, he said.
“We’re not supposed to open up a truck and see stacks of bodies in there," Chief Hood said.
Chief McManus said three people were taken into custody, but at this time it's unknown whether they're "absolutely connected to this or not."
He said the number of victims could rise. They had dogs searching the woods and will be out again in the morning.
Monday's discovery may be the deadliest tragedy among thousands who have died attempting to cross the U.S. border from Mexico in recent decades. Ten migrants died in 2017 after being trapped inside a truck that was parked at a Walmart in San Antonio. In 2003, 19 migrants were found in a sweltering truck in Victoria.

Typical Summer news story in south Texas!
48 dead illegals, not migrants
Astute point. Same story, higher number of deceased than usual.
Start executing smugglers and this will stop.
The van has to come through the Texas border. Sniffer dogs would’ve found the situation out in about 30 seconds. We know the US government isn’t worth shit now I’m beginning to think Texas isn’t worth shit either. Governor Abbott and Joe Biden have these 46 people on their heads. And the people who brought them over the border. Plenty of blame to go around on this one.
Yet another “success” story from Dementia Joe.
Got nothing to do with Governor Abbott.
Governor Abbott is NOT in charge of the border.
That’s Joe Dementia’s job.
But I am sure you knew that already.
Putting Dementia Joe in an old folks home forever could do the same thing.
No one screws up more than he does.
The Rats will still register them to vote.
40 dead....where was the “assault weapon”?
Whomever held the key to the locked door on the tractor trailer is the mass murderer. Likely multiple accomplices.
More blood on Xi Dung’s hands.
“48 dead illegals, not migrants”
At least an aggregate $100k/mo not going to relatives south of the border.
One has to consider the full impact of this tragedy.
Think of the economic impact to the Catholic and Lutheran charities who will miss out on the money to be made relocating these 46 now martyred migrants to unsuspecting small towns across America whose citizens will now miss out on the financial burden of supporting these culturally enriching heroes.
At least a few of them survived so these religious charities can still profit off of the sexual exploitation of the remaining migrants.
Brandon did this!
The “Biden did that” stickers I use at gas stations and grocery stores are pretty small. Someone needs to create a giant one to attach to that truck.
But that’s 40 less criminals coming into America, breaking laws, and voting RAT.
Sad but that’s 46 votes the Dems wont get in November. That’s assuming they would only vote once.
