MU police respond to medical emergencies amid heat

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Soaring temperatures are getting the blame for an unusual number of medical emergencies at the Missouri-Toledo game.

University of Missouri police Capt. Scott Richardson says at least 110 medical emergencies were reported Saturday, and most of them were heat related.

The Columbia Daily Tribune (http://is.gd/SHakx7) reports that none of the injuries were serious.

Temperatures had risen to nearly 96 degrees on campus during the mid-afternoon game at Faurot Field. Nearly 57,000 people turned out to watch Missouri beat Toledo 38-23.
