(San Antonio, TX) -- Three people are in custody after 46 migrants were found dead inside an 18-wheeler in San Antonio, Texas.

Another 16 migrants were found alive in the trailer and taken to the hospital in unknown conditions. Police say temperatures were hovering around 100 outside Monday, but that means it could have been as high as 120-degrees inside the truck.

San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg says the matter is now under federal investigation.
