At least 9 dead after overheated tractor-trailer found outside Texas Walmart

At least eight people were found dead and many more suffering from life-threatening injuries inside a sweltering semi-truck parked in the lot of a Walmart store in San Antonio, Texas, early Sunday.

The death toll has risen to at least nine after one person later died at a hospital, according to a report.

The discovery was made after a Walmart security guard was approached by a person in the truck, looking for water, according to San Antonio Police Chief William McManus, who spoke at a media briefing at the scene. The security guard gave the person water and then contacted authorities, who found eight people dead in the back of the trailer and 30 survivors in what officials described as a “horrific” human-trafficking incident.
