Death toll rises to 10 after 'horrific' human trafficking crime in Texas

The San Antonio police department and fire department are working a scene in the Walmart parking lot located on Interstate 35 and Poteet Jourdanton Highway.

San Antonio police Chief William McManus said he suspects human trafficking at the heart of the incident.

The employee "came back with the water, called the police, and we found eight dead in the back of that trailer", McManus said.

According to San Antonio police, they appeared to be suffering from dehydration.

The store's surveillance video showed that vehicles had arrived and picked up other people from the tractor-trailer.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security was involved in the investigation, he said.

At least eight people died in the attack (Picture: EPA/DARREN ABATE) Officials tow the truck from the scene (Picture: EPA/DARREN ABATE) Seventeen were transported to area hospitals with life-threatening injuries, and thirteen people had non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The city's fire chief Charles Hood added that there was no water supply or air conditioning in the truck, while temperatures in the area, which is around 150 miles from the Mexican border, remained over 100 degrees Fahrenheit until after 6pm that day.

The victims included adults and at least two children.

Authorities said they would be checking nearby woods again for those who may have gotten out of the trailer on Sunday morning.

"This is not an isolated incident. this happens all the time", McManus said.

Tens of thousands of illegal migrants from Mexico and Central America attempt to make the treacherous trip into the United States each year. A refrigeration truck, with no refrigeration, was filled with 38 undocumented people.

US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials defended the use of tough methods to fight human smuggling.
