The 16 People Hospitalized for Heat-Related Illness at the Snoop Dogg Show in Houston.
Montgomery County Hospital District public information officer Misti Willingham told USA TODAY Monday that 35 people showed signs of “heat-related illness” and were examined at the venue.
“Out of these, MCHD EMS transported 16 adults to nearby hospitals in stable condition,” the hospital shared.
The Atascocita Fire Department shared on X, formerly Twitter, Saturday that they were “headed to the Woodlands Pavilion to assist with overheated concert attendees at the @SnoopDogg concert” along with their medical ambulance bus, which is used to provide emergency services to large groups.
“We got your back Snoop!” the fire department added. Snoop Dogg’s concertgoers experiencing heat-related issues is not unique during one of the hottest summers in the Earth’s history.
The fire department was dispatched by the Montgomery County Hospital District to the concert venue as a precaution if the patient total continued to rise. “This is a common practice and very effective if done early on,” Atascocita Fire Department public information officer Jerry Dilliard told USA TODAY Monday.
