4 midshipmen treated for heat exhaustion
The U.S. Naval Academy says four midshipmen who had just completed an obstacle course are receiving medical attention after exhibiting signs of heat exhaustion.
Naval Academy spokeswoman Judy Campbell says first responders at the academy were called about 10 a.m. to assist four midshipmen who had completed an endurance course that included climbing cargo netting and jumping over logs.
The midshipmen who were on the course from 7 to 9 a.m. were being treated and monitored. Campbell said she did not know if the individuals were men or women or if they were being taken to a hospital.
First year students at the academy are currently undergoing six weeks of training before school begins. About 1,200 students are in the first year class. It was not clear if the individuals were part of the first year class.
