SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Fifty people have died after being abandoned in a tractor-trailer on a remote back road in the sweltering Texas heat.

It’s the latest tragedy to claim the lives of migrants smuggled across the border from Mexico to the U.S. Nearly all of the victims in San Antonio were found Monday near the truck. Four people later died after being taken to hospitals. More than a dozen people had been taken to hospitals, including four children.

The home countries of all of the migrants were not immediately known, but officials say some were from Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras.
