According to KENS, bodies of at least eight people, including two children, were found in the trailer. Twenty-eight other people were taken to area hospitals – 20 with life-threatening injuries, authorities said.

Police responded to the scene when a Walmart employee called for a welfare check. The driver of the truck had approached and asked for water.

San Antonio Fire Chief Charles Hood said the trailer was not air-conditioned, and many of those injured appeared to be suffering from heat stroke or dehydration, KENS reported.

The driver of the vehicle is reportedly in police custody.

Authorities called the incident a possible human-trafficking crime.
