More than 100 people locked in the back of a tractor-trailer trying to enter the United States illegally were rescued by Border Patrol agents in Laredo, Texas.

U.S. Border Patrol agents said they found a semi-truck with a white trailer. The driver said they had no identification and a canine alerted agents to the smell of humans in the trailer.

During a secondary inspection, the driver got out through the passenger door and ran into a nearby field.

When agents opened the trailer, they found 120 people inside. Agents said the individuals were arrested. The trailer was carrying 11 juveniles from Honduras and Guatemala along with 109 adults from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Ecuador and Mexico.
