San Antonio – A driver of a truck that last year in the American state of Texas, dozens of migrants smuggled in his vehicle has been sentenced to life in prison. Ten occupants of the truck, the 61-year-old driver survived the ride in the sweltering vehicle.

Researchers made a chilling discovery in the truck.

In the truck, which stood on a parking lot of a supermarket, discovered employees in July of last year about 30 people in the cargo area. The air conditioning of the car was not working, and many passengers had uitdrogingsverschijnselen. The temperatures outside the vehicle were at that time 38 degrees Celsius.

Eight people were already died in the truck. Two other persons died later in the hospital. The occupants were by human traffickers from Mexico to the United States to be transported.
