Texas and U.S. law enforcement officials in San Antonio, Texas, found a group of illegal immigrants being smuggled in the back of a tractor-trailer. Human smugglers transported the migrants in an air-conditioned trailer which prevented any serious injury or illness.

Law enforcement officers from several agencies responded to a call Tuesday night about a group of people suspected of illegally entering the U.S. When the police arrived, they found 55 suspected illegal immigrants in and around a refrigerated tractor-trailer, KSAT ABC12 reported.

San Antonio Fire Department Chief Charles Hood told reporters that because of the fact that the trailer was air conditioned and the smugglers provided water for the migrants, they only had to treat five people for minor injuries. He said none of the migrants suffered heat stroke or any other heat-related illness.

KSAT posted video filmed live from the scene as officers processed the migrants and the crime scene.
