An eight-months pregnant woman and 16 children were among dozens of migrants freed from the back of a locked, windowless truck on a highway in Austria, police said.
Officials said some of the 86 passengers had ripped holes in the stifling vehicle’s roof with their bare hands to allow air and light into the cramped compartment.
They had been inside the Hungary-registered vehicle for more than 12 hours without a break while exterior temperatures reached 95 degrees.
The migrants were from Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan. The children were aged between 5 months and 16 years.
“The pregnant woman had already fainted and several men collapsed shortly after they were released from the truck,” police spokesman Johann Baumschlager told NBC News.
