RAYMONDVILLE, Texas – A traffic stop resulted in the discovery of 86 immigrants inside a tractor-trailer in the Rio Grande Valley.
The Texas Department of Public Safety stopped the 18-wheeler off Highway 77 in Raymondville, officials said.
Two immigrants were taken to hospitals to be treated for dehydration.
"With the heat, it was heat exhaustion and dehydration that was the primary concern and complaint from the patients that we treated," said Frank Torres, of Willacy County EMS.
Officials said that several immigrants tied to escape but they were apprehended.
The driver and the passenger of the truck were arrested.
