The "24 hours" time is irrelevant.

The only issue is the temperature of the meat at the time you rescued it.

If the bags are still frozen, it should be okay.

If not, but the meat still feels very cold, it's probably okay.

But if the meat is warmer (over 4°C), you have no idea how long it has been warm enough for bacteria to grow, so don't take a chance.
