Ed Sheeran fans were hospitalized during the show in Pittsburgh


A total of 17 people were taken to the hospital with various medical emergencies during an Ed Sheeran concert in Pittsburgh Saturday night, the Pittsburgh EMS Office said in a news release.

The transports were for heat-related incidents, as well as falls, one seizure and two cardiac arrests, Pittsburgh EMS said.

In all, Pittsburgh EMS said they received 37 calls for service at the concert.

A worker deconstructing the Acrisure Stadium facility went into cardiac arrest on the floor and was treated and transported to hospital.

The other cardiac arrest occurred after a paramedic from an outside agency left the stadium. The patient received multiple shocks and was resuscitated and transported to a hospital, Pittsburgh EMS said.

While the planet set alarming new records last week, which are likely the hottest temperatures in “at least 100,000 years,” as one scientist told CNN, Pittsburgh experienced normal seasonal heat at the time of the concert, according to CNN Weather.
