Eagle Staff Report

At least 11 people were taken to area hospitals from Kyle Field on Saturday afternoon - most for heat-related illnesses, officials said.

Texas A&M Emergency Medical Services transported six people because they were dehydrated or passed out during the football game, said David Jimenez, communications captain.

Another medical outfit, Texas A&M Emergency Care Team, treated an unknown number of patients for heat-related illnesses inside the stadium.

Jimenez said paramedics normally transport about six people from home games and that 11 was unusually high.

Saturday's high temperature was 99.
