Several bodies found inside tractor-trailer in Walmart parking lot

On Sunday morning, July 23, officials found eight people dead and dozens injured inside a tractor-trailer truck parked at a Walmart in San Antonio as temperatures hit above 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The scene of the crime was the interior of a semi trailer located in a Walmart parking lot in San Antonio. The person also reportedly told the employee that there were people inside a trailer who needed help.

San Antonio fire chief Charles Hood said the people were in the trailer without any type of liquid. 20 of the people were shifted to hospitals for treatment. "This is a bad case of human trafficking", said the city police, which is about 130 km from the border with Mexico.

The crime came to light when a man in the truck asked a Walmart employee for water.

The driver of the lorry found in the vehicle park at the store in San Antonio was arrested and taken into police custody, although his identity has not yet been released. The truck held at least 38 people, according to authorities, and some occupants may have fled.

However, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski , the Cavs are in " serious talks " to bring in a former NBA MVP Derrick Rose . On Thursday night it was reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers are trying to add a former league MVP to their roster.

After the victims have been treated for injuries-two of whom were just 15 years old-they will be turned over the Immigration and Customs Officials.

Weather in the area had been hot and dry, with firefighters claiming the air conditioning unit inside the truck was not working.

Another victim of what authorities are calling a "horrific" human smuggling operation has died, hours before the truck driver accused in the case was due to appear in court.

Police say they checked surveillance video, which shows vehicles had arrived and picked up other people from the tractor-trailer.

"Fortunately there are people who survived, but this happens all the time", McManus said. The driver is facing state and federal charges. "The number of casualties could change in the morning, as some of them were in extremely critical condition", the police chief added.
