Pittsburgh paramedics treat 38 people at Stage AE concert
City paramedics were busy Tuesday evening treating dozens of people for heat exhaustion at a concert at Stage AE.
Thirty-eight people required treatment during the concert by Austin Mahone and others at the North Shore venue, city Public Safety Department spokeswoman Sonya M. Toler said. Of those, seven adults and a 14-year-old girl required hospital treatment, she said.
It was 78 at 8 p.m. at the National Weather Service station in Moon and the dew point remained pretty steady at 65, said meteorologist Rodney Smith.
“A dew point of 65 is relatively high but nothing extraordinary,” Smith said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
