Yesterday, paramedics looked after 21 patients for the same reason. Out of the total,15 were rushed to the hospital with two are in critical condition. This count increased from Wednesday’s count when paramedics got a call about a child who was left in a hot car.

The child in Tarrant County was attended by the crew and found safe without any need of hospitalized. But another child un Aubrey wasn’t lucky enough and was unresponsive when airlifted to the hospital.
Today again,  dangerously hot day with an expected heat index between 105 and 110 degrees especially for North Texans will make it the third successive day in a row with a heat index in the triple digits.
