High humidity and long waits for fans along the Blackhawks Stanley Cup parade route combined to cause numerous calls for emergency services for dehydration.

Fire Media Affairs Larry Langford said “several” people were transported from the parade and rally to local hospitals, but an exact number was not yet available.

Several patients with heat issues were treated at Michigan and Monroe during the parade, according to Fire Media.

At least one person was seen carted out from Soldier Field.
