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.
