A Mexican laborer has described the deadly horror that unfolded inside the sweltering, pitch-black trailer that was crammed with illegal immigrants and found in Texas on Sunday.

Adan Lara Vega, 27, said he was told the $5,500 he was being charged to be smuggled into the United States would include an air-conditioned truck ride.

Instead, he climbed with his friends into a pitch-black, metal tractor-trailer compartment that lacked ventilation – a deadly oven that would claim 10 lives.

‘After an hour I heard… people crying and asking for water. I, too, was sweating and people were despairing,’ Lara Vega said on Monday from his bed in a San Antonio, Texas hospital.

‘That’s when I lost consciousness.’

By the time he regained it on Sunday, he was in the hospital.
The 60-year-old truck driver, James Matthew Bradley Jr., was arrested after police found the immigrants crammed into the back of his trailer in the parking lot of a Walmart in San Antonio.
He has been charged over the deadly human smuggling operation and could face life in prison or the death penalty if convicted.
