Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Wednesday night that the military plane would make a second flight to San Antonio on Wednesday to recover eight more victims. Overall, the government plans to return the bodies of 25 of the 26 Mexican victims in accordance with the wishes of their families, the statement said.
The dead in the truck included people from the states of Guanajuato, Veracruz, Oaxaca, Mexico, Zacatecas, Queretaro, Morelos and Mexico City.
Migrants from Honduras and Guatemala were also among those killed in the deadliest known smuggling attempt in the United States.
In 2017, 10 people died after being trapped in a truck parked at a San Antonio Walmart. In 2003, the bodies of 19 migrants were found in a muggy truck southeast of the city.
