SAN ANTONIO, June 27 (Reuters) – The bodies of 46 dead migrants were discovered inside a tractor-trailer on Monday in San Antonio, Texas, city officials said, in one of the most deadly recent incidents of human smuggling along the U.S.-Mexico border.
A San Antonio Fire Department official said they found “stacks of bodies” and no signs of water in the truck, which was found next to railroad tracks in a remote area on the city’s southern outskirts.
Sixteen other people found inside the trailer were transported to hospitals for heat stroke and exhaustion, including four minors, but no children were among the dead, the department said.
“The patients that we saw were hot to the touch, they were suffering from heat stroke, exhaustion,” San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood told a news conference. “It was a refrigerated tractor-trailer but there was no visible working A/C unit on that rig.”
As no Evil Assault Weapon was involved, Gun Control advocates will remain silent in the hope you will dismiss it soon. The only malicious deaths that count are the ones that promote the disarmament of the Citizens.
This incident only had 3 less victims that the Pulse terrorist attack, but it is already destined to the bin of political amnesia because it is inconvenient.
The number of dead now surpasses the Pulse Club terrorist attack. not one shot fired, apparently.
