Eight people, including two children, have been found dead after they were locked inside a boiling truck without air conditioning or water in what police believe could be a human trafficking incident.

A total of 38 were found in the truck, which didn’t have a working air conditioning system despite blistering temperatures topping 100 degrees in San Antonio.

Two of those found inside were children. All have been rushed to nearby hospitals, with 20 in an ‘extremely critical or very serious condition’.

The driver of the truck has been arrested, however police have not released his identity.

The people inside the tractor-trailer were found in the early hours of Sunday morning after one of them approached a Walmart worker in the store parking lot and asked for some water.

The employee gave the person the water and then called police, and when officers arrived they found the eight people dead in the back of the trailer, police Chief William McManus said.

Investigators checked store surveillance video, which showed vehicles had arrived and picked up other people from the tractor-trailer, police said.

‘We’re looking at a human trafficking crime this evening,’ McManus said.

He called the case ‘a horrific tragedy.’

The police chief added that the Department of Homeland Security has joined an investigation to figure out what happened with the truck.
