At least 46 migrants found dead inside trucks in San Antonio, Texas. Sixteen people – 12 adults and 4 children – were transported to the hospital. “It is a terrible human tragedy”, the words of Mayor Ron Nirenberg reported by CNN. The Homeland Security Department was alerted by police to “an alleged human trafficking situation”. The hypothesis is that the vehicle was used to illegally cross the border between Mexico and the USA. Three people were stopped. At 6pm on Monday, June 27, a person heard cries for help coming from the vehicle, Police Chief Bill McManus explained at a press conference. The man found the trailer partially open and saw the dead people inside. Survivors were hospitalized for heat exhaustion and dehydration. There was no water inside the truck.
