This happens when your body gets extremely hot. Living outside in Southern California puts you at very high risk for this, especially if you have limited access to water.
This is considered a medical emergency so your #1 priority should be to get to a doctor as soon as possible - it can lead to death if not treated quickly.
What to look out for:
- Very high body temperature, 104°F or higher.
- Confusion, headaches, seeing or hearing things that aren't real
- Trouble walking or passing out.
- Vomiting or diarrhea.
- Muscle cramps or weakness.
When a person’s temperature is this high, they might be too confused to seek help. This makes it more important to watch out for friends and find them help as soon as possible - Call 911.
