There has been another terrible moment for America! There was an abandoned lorry found on the outskirts of San Antonio, Texas and at least 46 people have been found dead in that one lorry.

A fire official said 16 people, including 4 children, were taken to hospital during their time taking them from the lorry. The survivors were hot and suffering from heat strokes.

San Antonio is a major transit route for people smugglers in America, which is only 250km from the US-Mexico Border.

“They had families… and were likely trying to find a better life, It’s nothing short of a horrific, human tragedy.” said San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg.

Human traffickers often use lorries to transport undocumented migrants after meeting them in a remote area.

Emergency responders arrived at the scene at about 18:00 local time, which is 23:00 GMT, after responding to reports of a dead body. This is what the Fire Chief Charles Hood reported.

“We’re not supposed to open up a truck and see stacks of bodies in there. None of us come to work imagining that,” Said Charles Hood.

Human Trafficking is a massive thing in the US and can be very serious.
