Four people have been found inside a shipping container in the Port of Montreal.
The case is being treated as an illegal border crossing and the men are now under the charge of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
Border officials say they are investigating the case, but so far have little information.
“A number of stowaways were intercepted…in a container in the Port of Montreal,” explained Judith Gadbois-St-Cyr, a spokesperson with CBSA.
The RCMP says it does not know if the four came in themselves, or if they were taken against their will.
Police officials would not confirm the ages of the men, however reports state they are between the ages of 30 and 35 and were in the container for about three weeks.
“They suffered from heat stroke,” explained François Labelle, with Urgences-Santé.
It is not known if the four had any legal documents with them.
The men are now in stable condition at Santa Cabrini Hospital.
