Dozens of migrant workers were found dead in San Antonio, says Texas Gov. Abbott

At least 42 people were found dead on Monday in a large truck in San Antonio, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said.

He said on Twitter that the 18-wheeler was used to transport passengers. This miserable discovery was made late Monday afternoon in an undeveloped area in southwest San Antonio near the railroad tracks.

The heat is likely to be a focus for those investigating the deaths. The temperature rose to 101 on Monday, according to information from the Meteorological Office.

The temperature in a trailer full of people was probably significantly higher than the temperature might indicate.

The committee of the National Association of Medical Examiners has recommended that corpses with a temperature of 105 or higher at the time of the crash be certified as heat-related deaths.

Abbott blamed President Joe Biden for the deaths. His immigration policy “shows the fatal consequences of his refusal to enforce the law,” Abbott tweeted.

In 2017, 10 refugees died in a crowded truck transporting 39 people in San Antonio in the heat of summer.

Driver James Mathew Bradley Jr., 60, of Clearwater, Florida, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and moving people, even though his wife said he did not know people were in the trailer.

This is an evolutionary story; come back for updates.
