Migrants in Deadly Texas Incident Were Locked in Train Car for Hours: Mayor

Grim Reaper 6

Recommended Posts


At least 15 migrants were found trapped in a blistering train car just east of Uvalde, Texas, Friday afternoon, leaving two dead and sending several others to the hospital. According to a release from the Uvalde Police Department's Facebook page, 911 dispatchers received a call from an unknown caller at around 3:50 p.m. local time "advising there were numerous undocumented immigrants 'suffocating' inside of a train car." According to the National Weather Service, Uvalde reached highs of 87 degrees Friday around the same time the call to 911 was made.

Uvalde officials said that U.S. Border Patrol agents were informed of the call and stopped a Union Pacific train carrying the car near Knippa, Texas, a little over 11 miles east of Uvalde. Around 15 migrants were found by authorities "in need of immediate medical attention" inside the car. Police said that five were flown to San Antonio-area hospitals for treatment, while five others were transported to local area hospitals. Police also confirmed that two of the migrants were pronounced dead at the scene. It is unclear if the 911 call came from inside the train car or if one of the victims had contacted a relative outside of the train to ask for help.
