At least 46 people have been found dead inside an abandoned trailer-truck in the city of San Antonio, Texas.
It appears to be one of the worst cases of migrant deaths in recent years along the US-Mexico border.
San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said 16 other people found in the trailer on Monday were transported to the hospital for heat stroke and exhaustion. They included four minors.
San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg called Monday’s incident a “horrific human tragedy”.
“They had families and were likely trying to find a better life,” he said. “We hope those responsible for putting people through such inhumane conditions are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
