Saturday, June 29, 2013

More than 200 people had to be treated for heat-related symptoms while attending an outdoor concert in Las Vegas.

Fire officials said the patients were overwhelmed by the triple digit temperatures at the Warped Tour music festival Friday. Emergency workers set up several medical tents to prepare for the 112 degree heat.

Most of the sick people just needed to re hydrate and stay in the shade. But 34 of those affected by the heat had to be hospitalized.
