CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Paramedics have responded to a handful of calls Monday in Uptown Charlotte. They tell Channel 9 at least one person was transported to the hospital. It's not clear if it was because of the heat.
Paramedics are taking no chances. They learned Sunday during the protest march how dangerous the heat can be.
They told Eyewitness News they treated about two dozen people including some police officers.
"We did have several police officers who were affected by the heat and even several paramedics, so we were treating our own people at some point," said Battalion Chief Jeff Dulin.
