Some said that this could even cause heatstroke and warned others to be careful by staying in the shade and drinking more water. Some of the symptoms of heatstroke include altered mental state or behavior such as delirium, nausea, high body temperature, headache and rapid breathing.
In case you notice anyone who looks like they are experiencing heatstroke, here are some things you can do to immediately cool down their temperature while waiting for emergency treatment: Make sure to get the person indoors and bring down their body temperature by removing excess clothing or cooling them down with water or ice.
Stay safe, people and drink loads of water!
