How heat stroke kills

Sunday’s tragic discovery of dead, dying and injured undocumented immigrants, who had made the journey from Mexico to Texas crammed in the back of a sweltering metal tractor-trailer, raises many questions about heat stroke. Eight of these human trafficking victims were found dead and two died at the hospital. Twenty-eight others suffered various injuries, according to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. The San Antonio fire chief warned Sunday that many of those who survived will have “irreversible brain damage.”
