SAN ANTONIO — At least 42 people were found dead Monday in a truck with large rigging in San Antonio, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said.

He said on Twitter that the 18-wheeler was used to transport migrants. The grim discovery was made late Monday afternoon in an unexplored area in southwest San Antonio near the railroad.

The heat will likely be a concern for those investigating the deaths. Temperatures soared to 101 on Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

The heat in a trailer full of people was probably considerably greater than the high temperature would suggest.

A committee of the National Association of Medical Examiners recommended that: bodies with a temperature of 105 or higher at the time of collapse are certified as heat-related deaths.

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

In 2017, 10 migrants died in a packed truck carrying 39 people in San Antonio in the heat of summer.

Driver James Mathew Bradley Jr., 60, of Clearwater, Florida, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and transporting migrants, although his wife said he was not aware there were people in the trailer.

This is an evolving story; come back for updates.
