Dozens of people were found dead and several others were taken to hospitals after a tractor-trailer rig containing suspected migrants was found Monday on a remote back road in southwest San Antonio officials said.

A city worker at the scene was alerted to forty-six bodies and 16 injured and cried out for help shortly after 5:30PM Monday Police Chief William McManus said.

Officers arrived to find a body on the ground outside the trailer and a partially opened gate to the trailer.  Of the 16 taken to hospitals with heat-related illnesses, 12 were adults and 4 children.  The patients were hot to the touch and dehydrated and no water was found in the trailer he said.

According to reports, three people were taken into custody, but it was unclear if they were absolutely connected with human trafficking.

McManus said those in the trailer were part of a presumed migrant smuggling attempt into the US and the investigation was being led by US Homeland Security investigations.
